Welcome to the sharepoint site for Advancing Steel and Concrete Bridge Technology to Improve Infrastucture Performance, owned and managed by the Federal Highway Administration's Office of Bridge Technology.
This site serves as a colloboration and communication point for our work being conducted in cooperation with Lehigh University under a 5-year Cooperative Agreement signed on September 30, 2011. Subawardees also include Univ. of Delaware, Univ. at Buffalo, Modjeski and Masters, and Corven Engineering.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Bridge Technology (HIBT) develops regulations, policies, and guidelines to ensure the successful delivery of the national bridge program. In cooperation with the Office of Infrastructure Research and Development (HRDI), HIBT supports advancement of state-of-the-art technologies and provides leadership in the deployment of such technologies to improve the condition and durability of the nation’s bridges and highway structures. In this context, “technology” has broad definition and can refer to engineering materials, systems, criteria, tools, and/or techniques. To the extent possible, FHWA seeks to stimulate new technologies during hands-on design and construction reviews of major and unusual bridges and tunnels. National leadership for standard practice is provided through the development of reports, manuals, guidance, and training on design, construction, evaluation, and maintenance in the relevant areas of bridge engineering.
We hope you find this site to be informative, as well as effective in knowledge transfer to promote improvement of nation's infrastructure performance.
