  • Center for Highway Pavement Preservation


    The mission of CHPP is aimed at providing a new platform for accelerating innovation in highway pavement preservation. The center will assist in meeting the increasing demand for highway pavement preservation research and will further the goal of increasing the reliability and performance of the nation’s highways.

    The establishment of the proposed Center will complement the efforts currently undertaken by the NCPP to conduct outreach and technology transfer, especially in transferring research and educational advances in highway pavement preservation to the broad transportation community. The Center will use the links established by the NCPP with a variety of state and local highway transportation agencies and private companies to accomplish its outreach mission. Contacts with the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) in Michigan (run by Michigan Technological University) and other LTAPs will be leveraged to reach local transportation agencies.

  • Nondestructive Evaluation Laboratory (NDEL)


    2580 Engineering Building, 428 S. Shaw Lane,  East Lansing, MI, 48824.


    The Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) Laboratory (NDEL) at Michigan State University has been at the forefront in the development of innovative solutions to NDE related problems. Nondestructive evaluation is the examination of an object for structural integrity without impairing the future usefulness of the object. The objective of NDE is to detect and characterize internal or surface cracks and corrosion in structures that can result in failure of the structure. The test method ranges from a simple visual one to more complex sensors that involve some form of energy, such as electromagnetic, acoustic, thermal, radiographic, etc.

    Research activity in the NDEL is supported by the aerospace, nuclear power, defense, natural gas and biomedical industries, among others. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation to conduct research across a broad spectrum of electromagnetic and ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation methodologies.
