NDE technologies detect, monitor, and evaluate health issues in roads, bridges, and other transportation assets. Finding and dealing with deterioration before it reaches “critical condition,” extends the service life of infrastructure and reduces life-cycle costs.
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.
