TRB Webinar: When to Use Fully Grouted Piezometer Installations July 08, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

The fully grouted method of installing piezometers is increasingly popular, but it doesn’t work in every case. TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern to provide critical information regarding the most effective piezometer installations for the applications at hand. It will focus on which factors to consider when deciding on a fully grouted installation rather than a conventional sand pack type. Presenters will discuss the consequences of selecting the inappropriate methods. They will include case studies to demonstrate some of the difficulties analyzing data and to highlight reasons for what might appear to be erroneous data.

TRB Webinar: Strategic Issues Affecting Highway Preservation, Maintenance, and Renewal July 23, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM U.S. Eastern 1.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

The transportation industry faces a wide range of plausible future scenarios that may affect standard practices over the next 30 to 50 years. Because the range of possibilities over such a long-term period is quite broad, making a focused prediction of the implications for highway infrastructure preservation, maintenance, and renewal (PMR) is quite challenging. TRB is hosting a webinar on Thursday, July 23, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern that will examine some of the long-term strategic issues affecting transportation agencies. Presenters will identify how to prepare for plausible future scenarios by discussing a pathway to guide transportation agencies in advancing the implementation of emerging PMR practices.

This webinar draws on research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report 750: Strategic Issues Facing Transportation, Volume 7: Preservation, Maintenance, and Renewal of Highway Infrastructure. This report is the seventh and final report in the Foresight Series.

TRB Webinar: Bridge Scour Risk Management July 28, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Flooding and scour are a leading cause of bridge failures in the United States. Agencies responsible for bridge safety seek effective threat-mitigation strategies, including installation of scour countermeasures to monitor, control, inhibit, change, delay, or minimize stream instability and bridge-scour susceptibility. TRB is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will identify current practices of bridge scour risk management. Presenters will propose an implementation plan to improve the consistency in applying risk management techniques.

This webinar draws on research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Domestic Scan Program 15-02: Bridge Scour Risk Management.

TRB Webinar: Human Trafficking and Mobility of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women July 29, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 0.00 1.50 0.00

Thousands of Native American women and girls disappear or are killed each year. These women and girls vanish from tribal lands, rural communities, and cities with no official accounting. TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern that will explore the unique mobility patterns of Native Americans as they travel from rural tribal territories to urban centers. Certain social structures have made mobility difficult for indigenous women and girls, and as a result, there are inadequate accounts of human trafficking from this community. Presenters will discuss current federal Indian laws and tribal guidelines that may affect human trafficking, identify the social determinants and risk factors of murdered and missing indigenous women, and describe the critical issues of human sex trafficking with regards to tribal jurisdiction.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Native American Transportation Issues.
