ABSTRACT
This paper describes some efforts to design more efficient analysis for the GPR raw-data interpretation. Such analysis requires algorithms by which problems having complex scattering properties can be solved as accurately and as quickly as possible. This specification is difficult to achieve when dealing with iteratively solved algorithms characterized by a forward solver as part of the loop, which often makes the solution process computationally prohibitive for large problems. The inverse problem is solved by an alternative approach which uses model-free methods based on example data. Measurements with GPR equipment were performed to validate the algorithms using concrete slabs.
