Abstract : The research reported was part of the Department of Defense Universities Research Initiative (URI) Program. Because of the heavy investment in planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of its huge physical plant, the U.S. Army included Advanced Construction Technology as one of the areas of concentration in the URI program. The research program reported here consisted of 28 research projects conducted in the following five thrust areas: nondestructive evaluation technologies for constructed works, construction site metrology, new materials and material technologies for construction, computer-aided construction, and special technologies. Accordingly, the research program was a multi-disciplinary program conducted by faculty and graduate students at the University of Illinois.
