Ultrasound. Ground penetrating radar. Thermal imaging. You probably don’t think of these Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) technologies as necessary tools for bridge inspections. But Glenn Washer, professor of civil and environmental engineering, has conducted research that proves these technologies greatly enhance condition assessment of bridges, leading to improved inspections that help prevent accidents and collapses.
