This report surveys the interdisciplinary research activities focused on the applying new technologies to infrastructure systems. Traditional civil engineering tools are not sufficient for building and maintenance of the infrastructure system of the 21st century. Different kinds of technologically innovative products, processes, and systems are needed to improve the future performance of public facilities. Some new infrastructure technologies are emerging from other disciplines include the development of fiber optic sensors, algorithms for neural computing, and design of shape memory alloys for structural applications.
