TRB Webinar: Designing Pavement Subsurface Drainage Using DRIP Software October 23, 2018 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM U.S. Eastern 2.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET that explores how to use Drainage Requirements in Pavement (DRIP) software to design effective drainage systems for pavements. The absence of adequate drainage in pavements may lead to premature distress or failure of the pavement system, especially regarding load carrying capacity. The DRIP software, which can be downloaded online for free, may provide an objective way to calculate the time to drain and depth of flow of drainage layers. Presenters will describe samples of pavement failure due to lack of proper drainage, demonstrate the DRIP software, and discuss potential benefits of pavement drainage and maintenance.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Subsurface Drainage and Geosynthetics.

TRB Webinar: Wildlife-Vehicle Collision Mitigation: Data to Decisions October 24, 2018 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM U.S. Eastern 2.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET that examines methods and strategies of data collection for wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVC). To improve driver safety and develop more environmentally-sustainable highway systems, many state departments of transportation are developing mitigation actions and structures for WVC. The first step of these developments is collecting and analyzing data about the locations, types, and severity of incidents. Presenters will discuss case studies from five different states that have developed methods to collect and share this data. They will also share lessons learned, explore the available analytical tools, and identify effective ways to inform the planning and delivery of WVC mitigation.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, October 25, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)’s Research Report 202: Handbook for Examining the Effects of NEMT Brokerages on Transportation Coordination. The research provides background information about Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) and describes the different models available to states for providing NEMT for Medicaid beneficiaries.

This webinar will provide information to understand what influences state Medicaid agencies to establish separate NEMT brokerages or to include NEMT as part of Medicaid managed care. The webinar will discuss the resulting effects of these trends on the coordination of human services transportation with public transportation. The presenters will identify opportunities and suggest strategies to coordinate these transportation programs to achieve common desired outcomes for providing NEMT.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, November 5, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)’s Legal Research Digest 32: Evolving Law on Airport Implications by Unmanned Aerial Systems and ACRP Project 03-42 Topic A: Managing Unmanned Aircraft Systems in the Vicinity of Airports.

Airports are using unmanned aerial systems (UAS), also known as drones, in more varied and potentially revenue-generating ways, including foreign object debris detection, cargo delivery, terminal and perimeter inspection, and wildlife management. However, airport sponsors and their legal counsel are unclear about competing local, state, and federal regulations governing UAS operations. This webinar will present specific UAS safety, security, and privacy concerns within the context of the Small Unmanned Aircraft Regulations (14 C.F.R. Part 107). The presenters will discuss the existing practices currently available while lawmakers create the regulations that oversee the advances in unmanned aviation.  The presenters will also provide an overview of the ACRP research underway to address the challenges and opportunities presented by UAS as they integrate into the national airspace.

TRB Webinar: Design Considerations for Airport Emergency Operations Centers November 29, 2018 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.50 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, November 29, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)’s Research Report 189: Design Considerations for Airport EOCs and Synthesis 73: Emergency Communication Planning for Airports.

Emergency operations centers (EOCs) are involved in command and control, policymaking, coordination, and overall direction of responding forces in an emergency situation. While commercial airports typically have a space they refer to as the EOC, some EOCs are repurposed conference rooms that may not be adequate for handling all emergency operations. This webinar will provide information to guide airports through the decision-making process involved when considering changes to their EOC. These changes may include upgrading an existing EOC, evaluating a move to an alternative existing space, or building an entirely new EOC.
