ABSTRACT
A modified method for measuring thickness of structural elements in buildings using probing signals of variable frequency is considered. To increase the measurement accuracy, the use of an auxiliary coaxial probe, in addition to transmitting-and-receiving antennas, is proposed. A device is developed to test the method. The device, whose the frequency can vary in a range from 1.9 to 6.6 GHz, is experimentally tested on concrete walls.
