Bridge deck deterioration includes delamination, corrosion of rebars, vertical cracking and concrete degradation. Ground Penetrating Radar based inspection technique was used for mapping bridge deck in order to monitor the health of this vital structure. Beginning from the 1970‘s, research has focused on identification of bridge deck deterioration which causes severe deficiencies by reducing seriously strength. The main purpose of this work was to review the literature existing in the field of bridge deck diagnosis by means of Ground Penetrating Radar. This enabled to survey detailed evolution of this technique, to understand the effects of key intervening parameters and to determine the kind of material disorders that this device could be used for. Bridge deck condition assessment can then be performed more successfully, based on the huge progress experienced by this particular method of inspection.
