Abstract
As the infrastructure of the United States gets older and as competition for funds increases, organizations in charge of bridge repair and rehabilitation must look for new and innovative technolgies to determine the best use of their existing funds. To do this, the transportation industry must constantly be looking for new technologies and for new and innovative applications of existing technologies. As our knowledge of structures increases, so does our need for exacting testing. Through nondestructive evaluation, valuable information is acquired which assists personnel involved in bridge inspection, bridge management, bridge design, budgeting, and in providing for public safety and protecting the public investment with respect to bridges.
