Development and Integration of Advanced Timber Bridge Inspection Techniques for NBIS Purchase Equipment and Train Users

Status:  Complete
Project Start Date:  01/21/2015


This project has set the stage with all necessary protocols and training for improved inspections of timber bridges, especially deteriorated substructure. However, full-scale implementation of this research will require that county and state inspectors have access to the specialized timber bridge inspection equipment that was identified during this project. The project team has worked to develop standard operating procedures, video demonstration and to provide hands-on access during the short courses developed and conducted in this project
