Abstract
Large scale implementation of smart materials and smart technology to engineered structures in any particular location requires the demonstration of cost effective applicability to the construction, repairs/upgrades and in- service inspections required by that site. The potential for using smart materials/technology at the Savannah River Site can be demonstrated through the repair, upgrade and construction of two bridges. The design and construction philosophy for one of the bridges will incorporate smart materials and technologies while the other parallel bridge has already been constructed using standard construction practices. This demonstration of smart materials/technology at the Savannah River Site is still in the planning stage and will advance quickly as funding is acquired.
