Field Testing Technologies for NIST TIP Project
Field testing plays an integral role in the NIST TIP project being led by Associate Professor Jerry Lynch of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. It is necessary to validate the performance of the technologies being developed for the project. These technologies must be able to withstand unpredictable and harsh environmental conditions. The project is focusing on two test sites.
The new Carquinez Bridge in northern California, and the Telegraph road bridge in southeast Michigan both provide a good opportunity to test the behavior of their equipment in a variety real-world conditions.
