This webinar will provide an overview of the advances in NDE technologies, especially those employing rapid and automated data collection and analysis, and benefits for bridge management stemming from periodical multi-NDE technology surveys.
This course provides the basics for developing a road surface management program to help local governments manage their pavements by providing an understanding of the concept and importance of road surface inventories and condition surveys. A review of the basic components of flexible and rigid pavements is discussed.
Retaining walls, embankments, slopes, and subgrades are types of geotechnical assets that can adversely influence the performance of transportation and other infrastructure systems, particularly with increasing age as deterioration and the consequences from deferred maintenance are realized.
UTC partners at Cornell University’s Local Roads Program have developed a new software tool to help local agencies do their own pavement designs. Under-designing roads can mean more expensive repairs for local towns and counties in the long run. To address this issue a user-friendly software tool tool was developed.
In June UTC partners at Cornell's Local Roads Program will host a free webinar on low-volume roadway pavements and how to use a new software they have developed to help local agencies do their own pavement designs.
CAIT researchers have demonstrated that mechanical vibrations have the potential to be one possible solution to alleviating the “ice bomb” dilemma. That is, ice accumulating on the stay cable sheaths of cable-stayed bridges and falling to the roadway below.
