Civil Engineers continuously face the challenge of monitoring the health of the old mega engineering structures like Dams & Power Houses for Power Projects and Flyovers & Bridges for Highways & Railways. The problems (such as leakages, cracks, damaged structures etc.) occurring in the old or even new structures at times are difficult to manage because of the running and operating structures as it is almost impossible to carry out the conventional investigations such as drilling, drifting and even physical mapping in such cases. Such issues in these mega structures can lead to huge loss of life, economy and time in case timely action is not taken by the concerned authorities. Geophysics play a very important role in such cases due to its non – destructive and cost effective nature.
