This research report discusses the planning necessary for the proper development, acquisition, installation, and maintenance of an effective health monitoring network for transportation infrastructure systems. A comprehensive literature search was conducted, and the materials were compiled into a database, reviewed, and synthesized. Data elements vital for maintaining safe and functional transportation infrastructures were identified and discussed for bridge structures, pavements, and geotechnical structures. Moreover, the steps necessary for planning an instrumentation system for a particular structure are presented. Sample design plans for the transportation infrastructure systems that are typically constructed in Wisconsin were obtained from WisDOT, and suggested instrumentation plans were developed for these transportation systems. One of the objectives of the research project is to identify urban freeway construction projects that could efficiently serve as hosts for an infrastructure health monitoring (IHM) instrumentation testbed. Major current and near-future construction projects in Wisconsin were identified and critically evaluated to identify a candidate project to host the IHM testbed. Among the candidates, the Zoo Interchange reconstruction project is recommended for hosting the infrastructure health monitoring testbed. Cost estimates based on current market prices are provided for the instrumentation plans developed for IHM of bridge structures, pavements, and geotechnical structures. To provide an example of using IHM data in applications, archived data from the Marquette Interchange instrumentation project was used to develop vehicle wander patterns and load spectra data, both in the form needed to conduct a mechanistic appraisal of the pavement structure using the DARWin ME software. The research team designed and conducted an IHM survey of state highway agencies in the U.S. and Canada. The survey showed that 46 percent of state DOTs have implemented health monitoring applications for transportation infrastructure. The survey also identified the impediments facing state DOTs in implementing IHM systems.

"The following manual represents a selection from the teaching materials which the writer has used for a number of years in a one-semester course on laboratory apparatus and technique. The level at which the book proceeds can be indicated in terms of the persons for whom it is primarily intended and the general background or prerequisites which it assumes. The material is intended to be an introduction to the laboratory directed at graduate students or professional people who desire enough detail to get started into an area of research. Where space permits, references to more advanced sources are cited to provide a basis for following through to a higher level. Information will seldom be complete at the level of the research specialist, although occasionally he may find new material or circuits"--(PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved).

In the last two decades, spine instrumentation and surgery have undergone many improvements. The second edition benefits from contributions by renowned orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons who helped create and refine the systems described in the book, and devoted their careers to educating next generations of spine surgeons. Advancements in instrumentation - plates, cages, rods, screws, disc replacements, spacers, and fusion devices - have led to improved outcomes for patients. The spinal device field has grown exponentially, and surgeons are faced with an increasingly diverse choice of instrumentation options. While the first edition categorized available systems, the new edition is focused on helping clinicians avoid complications and quickly recognize and manage complications when they do occur. Key Features A concise yet comprehensive reference that educates clinicians on the causes, recognition, and avoidance of instrumentation complications Organized by anatomical region and condition, the visualization of relevant anatomical landmarks is discussed in context with safe use of spinal instrumentation Now four-color, with more than 230 new and original illustrations Easy-to-digest text helps translate classroom knowledge into clinical application This up-to-date book will help orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons learn how to utilize spinal devices more efficaciously and safely. The text is also an excellent reference for radiologists, spine fellows and residents, and physician extenders who are interested in attaining knowledge and experience in spinal instrumentation.
