||The University of Cincinnati Infrastructure Institute (UCll) currently operates adecommissioned steel stringer bridge testbed site which is serving as the test specimen forresearching and demonstrating condition assessment and structural damage detectionconcepts and tools. The research is designed around the iterative application of variousdamage scenarios followed by structural identification in order to determine the viability andsensitivity of various experimental approaches (including instrumented monitoring and modaltesting) for use in objective condition assessment. This project constitutes a first of its kindattempt at the study of these methods applied under realistic damage conditions to an actualfull-scale operating structure. As a result, the experimental data and results acquired duringthis research are potentially of great value members of the academic, government, andinduslrial communities. Correspondingly, one of the goals of this research is thedissemination of results through the use of a CD-ROM multimedia database incorporatinginfomation in audio, video, photogrammetric, diagrammaticKADD, text, graphical, and rawnumeric data formats. The goal of this effort is to effectively communicate to users allinformation about the project necessary to be able to make use of the experimental data andresults obtained in an intelligent and informed manner. This paper describes various designand development issues connected with this database development effort.
