Software for sonic/radar tomography

The result consists of a prototype software developed in a high level language to perform the tomographic inversion of sonic and/or radar data. The software is an extension of a previous prototype developed by POLIMI for tomography. Traveltime and Amplitude inversions can be performed to obtain velocity and attenuation maps on 2D sections of building elements with any kind of geometry.

For amplitude tomography, radar data is processed by compensating the antenna directivity function. A new algorithm based on frequency analysis is also included for attenuation tomography on sonic data where amplitudes are not reliable being affected by many factors besides absorption.
