A Plan for Developing High Speed, Nondestructive Testing Procedures for both Design Evaluation and Construction Inspection

The overall objective of this work is to develop a process to identify existing or, if necessary, to develop new and quickly implementable technologies for rapid, nondestructive testing of <em style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">in situ</em> conditions for purposes of design, construction inspection, and performance monitoring.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span>These technologies would limit or reduce traffic disruption on existing facilities during preliminary engineering investigations, and provide more rapid and reliable information on as-built conditions.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span>Similarly, rapid inspection of new construction would facilitate timely re-opening of roadways and structures during re-construction.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span><o:p></o:p></font></span></p><p class="Projectsubhead" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt 0.5in; TEXT-INDENT: -0.25in; mso-outline-level: body-text; tab-stops: list .5in left 81.0pt 2.5in 3.25in 4.5in 369.0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo2"><font face="Arial"><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Times New Roman'; mso-bidi-font-weight: bold"><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:state w:st="on"></st1:state></st1:place></span></font></p>
