STATE OF THE ART OF CAPACITIVE TOMOGRAPHY FOR THE LOCATION OF PLASTIC PIPING Prepared by the GAS TECHNOLOGY INSTITUTE For DOE/NETL Brian J. Huber Christopher J. Ziolkowski GTI STATE OF THE ART & SYNOPSIS OF AVAILABLE LITERATURE 1.0 INTRODUCTION The objective of this synopsis is to provide a general overview of the current state of the field of capacitive tomography. This will accomplish two objectives. The first objective being a theoretical and experimental grounding of the proposed capacitive tomography project. The second objective being to indicate or provide justification for the need to conduct further research into the particular area of underground detection of non-metallic structures by the use of electric fields.
