About the research
Research objective: The objective of this work is to develop an initial concept for a smart timber bridge and a 5-year research plan that will result in the initial development, beta-testing, and deployment of such a system. It is anticipated that this research plan will serve as the guide for future funding of efforts needed to achieve the goal of developing a ready to implement smart timber bridge.
