Steel Bridge Research,
Inspection, Training, and
Engineering Center at Purdue
Publication: Publication Date: 1 January 2017Testing Method:
To help meet growing infrastructure challenges, Purdue
University partnered with the Indiana DOT to develop
a unique center focused on aging steel bridges and
infrastructure—the Steel Bridge Research, Inspection,
Training, and Engineering (S-BRITE) Center. The center
is focused on providing training, education, and
research related to the tools and technologies needed
to maintain the safety and serviceability of steel
bridges and other infrastructure.
