Research is an important part of the relationship between New Mexico State University’s Bridge Inspection Program and the New Mexico Department of Transportation. The first “smart bridge” incorporating fiber-optic technology was installed in 2004. Developed by NMSU faculty, this technology has since been installed in two additional New Mexico bridges. Other ongoing research projects involve non-destructive evaluation techniques such as acoustic emission and ultrasonic testing, and innovative construction materials and design.
