Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) tools and techniques are used to assess, monitor, and analyze the health of infrastructure. Early detection of deterioration extends lifespans and enables more economical management of our country's roads, bridges, and other critical transportation assets.
The Infrastructure Condition Monitoring Program (ICMP) at CAIT specializes in nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of roads, bridges, utilities, and other infrastructure. NDE encompasses several state-of-the-art technologies and techniques that allow engineers to see what’s happening below the surface, where many problems start. NDE is less costly, less disruptive, and more accurate than traditional infrastructure testing methods.
Accurately assessing and monitoring the health of vital infrastructure can extend its life. By detecting deterioration early on, NDE gives authorities the opportunity to intervene with timely corrective actions, making maintenance and management of our transportation network more effective and more economical.
