We live in an era of rapid evolvement of our technological ability and our expectations. Whereas we have been quick to adopt technological advances in consumer products and the industrial enterprise, our pace has been slow in embracing new materials in civil infrastructure. It is not difficult to identify many barriers that have led to this slow pace. The members of the Center for Advanced Technology in Bridges and Infrastructure intend to methodically address these barriers with the ultimate goal of promoting widespread adoption of innovations in common civil infrastructure with emphasis on bridges.
