Hydrographic Surveys

Brennan uses the latest multi-beam systems combined with RTK-GPS to model the entire area around bridge structures. These detailed models can clearly delineate areas of scour, debris build-up, and footing conditions. The data collected is used to build a 3-dimensional model that can be used for visual inspections, as well as scour calculations.

Acoustic Imaging

When underwater visibility is limited, or water flows are too high to safely use divers, underwater acoustic imaging, aka sector scans, can be a helpful tool. This technology uses acoustics to create an image of the pier or abutment to help detect structural problems and scour issues. Typically, these images can be combined with above water digital photography or CAD drawings to create a pictorial reference of the entire structure.

ROV Surveys

Brennan has 3 remotely operated vessels that can be used to gather information when underwater conditions are unknown or difficult to access. They are outfitted with HD video cameras and sonar systems to navigate and collect valuable information.

Side Scan Sonar

Side scan sonar is another great imaging system that can give a detailed view on underlying debris, sediment buildups, and whatever else may be happening underneath the surface of the water. Gathering information is quick and economic, and often coupled with other imaging services to get a full understanding of the area surrounding the bridge structure.
