SIM: Powering the Industry Standard
Subsurface Investigation Methodology is the most comprehensive specification in the subsurface damage prevention industry.
What is Subsurface Investigation Methodology – SIM?
According to the Common Ground Alliance (CGA), over the last 20 years, improperly located or unlocated subsurface utilities have caused $1.7 billion in damages and resulted in thousands of injuries and hundreds of fatalities.
It’s common for technical industries to develop their own jargon over time. Jargon is complex industry-specific language used in a particular trade, profession, group, or field of study. Sometimes jargon can be seen as convoluted or excluding, but it’s often necessary to communicate specific technical information.
Here are some common and uncommon words and phrases that you may come across when researching or communicating about utility locating, concrete imaging, leak detection, CCTV video pipe inspection, and more. Note that these are broad definitions meant to clarify the essential meaning for an average reader.
How Ground Penetrating Radar Works
Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) is a geophysical method of identifying what lies beneath the ground, typically using radio waves in the microwave band. GPRS uses this technology for private commercial applications such as utility locating, concrete imaging, and other services. The ability to find out what’s underneath the surface without breaking the ground is vital because it will provide critical subsurface infrastructure information in a non-invasive way. But ground penetrating radar went through multiple iterations before it became the staple to subsurface damage prevention that it is today.
