This article presents a case study where FWD and GPR, two NDT methods, were combined to assess the bearing capacity of a flexible pavement. The thickness of the bituminous layer was estimated using a coreless GPR approach: the Common Mid-Point method with Air-Coupled antennas, by combining multiple GPR offset configurations.
