Concrete Bridge Engineering Institute (CBEI)

The overall objective of this pooled fund is to implement specific programs within the Concrete Bridge Engineering Institute (CBEI) that address national workforce training needs through research, development, and technology transfer activities. The specific objectives are to develop and implement the following programs with coordinated input of members of the pooled fund: Three initial specific training programs, a Concrete Solutions Center, and a Bridge Component Collection. The technology transfer through training programs will draw on the latest technologies and provide an innovative approach by utilizing a hands-on intensive curriculum. The training programs will draw from the best, and most current, state of the art methods. CBEI will serve to continually gather emerging or underutilized technologies such as those above, and provide research, development, and technology transfer activities in partnership with the originators of the technology. This will result in training curricula and technology transfer documents for the concrete bridge workforce. Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE) techniques will be an overarching component included in each of the programs.
