Nakin Suksawang, a professor of civil and environmental engineering and a researcher with Lehman Center for Transportation Research at FIU’s College of Engineering & Computing, along with four students, installed 96 stainless steel embedded strain sensors in critical locations over six segments of the bridge prior to the concrete being poured.

Every two years, all bridges in the United States need to go through inspections and with these sensors, there’s a whole new wave of data and possibilities that can help future construction projects and engineering efforts.
