Workshop on Quantitative Tools for Condition Assessment of Aging Infrastructure

Purpose:

This workshop is designed to sharpen the focus of NIST's Material Measurement Laboratory (MML) programs by matching the measurement technology capabilities of MML with existing technology gaps in the realm of assessing bridge performance to prioritize their repair and replacement. The workshop will include various bridge stakeholders, approximately 50 attendees, from universities, professional societies, industry, and the DOTs (state and federal). The attendees will help NIST researchers identify areas which would provide the best application of their skills and to propose potential partners for specific projects. The workshop will start with several keynote presentations to frame the topics. The keynotes will be followed by parallel breakout sessions to develop and rank potential research activities. The workshop will conclude with all the attendees to develop a consensus and prioritized list.

Topics:

Uncertainty in inspection information, advanced sensors, behavior of connections, and materials mechanical response.
