Abstract:

This report documents the major findings gathered during a one-week task force trip to western Europe during June of 1993. The task force trip was organized by the Civil Engineering Research Foundation (CERF) in coordination with the National Science Foundation (NSF), which co-funded the study with CERF. Additional funding was provided by the Federal Highway Administration, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Air Force. During the trip to Europe that is documented in this report, a team of 28 leaders from the construction industry, government, and academia visited six countries, observed a variety of laboratories and construction sites, and met with many private and public sector representatives to gain an understanding of constructed civil infrastructure systems R&D in western Europe.
