To protect the integrity and safety of buildings damaged by earthquakes, delaminated concrete must be inspected as soon as possible. On the other hand, a manual examination has limitations in determining the extent of internal concrete structural damage. This research aims to assemble a portable subsurface penetrating radar that can detect concrete delamination and assess it scientifically and quickly. The completed system was analyzed by building a concrete block with air pockets to simulate concrete delamination and scanning the block while watching the hyperbola fluctuation in the radargram. Actual scanning of the basketball court and the Surigao State College of Technology building found delaminated concrete. The integrated subsurface penetrating radar for concrete delamination demonstrates successful rapid assessment based on and actual site testing.
