Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Infrastructure: Planning and Management

Abstract: The quality of America's infrastructure today is barely adequate to fulfill current requirements, and sufficient to meet the demands of future economic growth and development. This serious problem has been documented extensively by different organizations, which agree on the need to develop new infrastructure rehabilitation research strategies, tools and products to improve the performance and efficiency of existing facilities. This paper describes a research program that will address this need using a strategy based on the integration of design and construction. This research program will be implemented over the next five years, under a 1992 National Science Foundation (NSF) Young Investigator Award.
