IMS Center on site at I-35W Bridge

200px-i35_bridge_collapse_4crop.jpgThe National Science Foundation has requested and awarded emergency supplemental funding to our Intelligent Maintenance Systems Center (an NSF/IUCR center) to deploy a quick response team to Minneapolis, MN to survey the I-35W bridge failure.

250px-i35w_bridge.jpg The data and information collected from this planned trip will be used to guide the development and deployment of embedded smart sensors to improve the monitoring and prognosis of potential bridge failure such as this one.
