TRB Webinar: Tools for a Sustainable Transit Agency June 05, 2018 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 0.00 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that features research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)’s Research Report 197: Tools for a Sustainable Transit Agency.

This research explores the development of two tools for improving sustainability at transit agencies, the Sustainability Routemap and the S+ROI Calculator, which address transit sustainability through simplifying, translating, and implementing existing knowledge in new ways. These tools, available through downloading a .zip file, may help agencies create a successful sustainability program by developing performance measures, obtaining buy-in from leadership and staff, or applying a combination of methods.  The presenters will describe the tools so that audience members are comfortable using them at their agencies.

TRB Webinar: Classifying Fracture Critical Members June 07, 2018 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM U.S. Eastern 2.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, June 7, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET that that will discuss the concept of fracture critical members (FCMs) in steel bridges. Over the past decade, there have been various notions about what constitutes an FCM, but it was not clearly defined. This webinar will present recent research and specifications on methods to establish if a member should be classified as an FCM or not.  Presenters will provide background to the development of the proposed guide and provide examples about how to evaluate internal member-level redundancy of mechanically-fastened built-up steel members. This webinar will also explore how the proposed guide specifications could be applied to twin tub girder bridges in the context of system behavior.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Steel Bridges.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that will discuss how to commission Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program disparity studies to satisfy legal and constitutional imperatives. The DBE program is a U.S. Department of Transportation mandate which ensures that federally assisted contracts for highway, transit, and aviation projects are made available to small businesses owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. Disparity studies are often used by state departments of transportation to improve their mandatory DBE triennial goal submissions. Presenters from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will discuss how to conduct a methodologically sound and legally defensible DBE disparity studies. They will also provide recommendations for getting the most out of these studies.

TRB Webinar: Nail it or Fail it: How to Build a Successful Mobility as a Service Story June 18, 2018 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, June 18, 2018 from 1:00 PM ET to 2:30 PM ET that discusses the state-of-the-practice of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) in Europe. MaaS is defined as a shift away from personally-owned modes of transportation and toward shared-use multimodal mobility. This mobility is enabled by combining transportation services from public and private transportation providers through a unified smartphone app that creates and manages the trip, which users can pay for with a single account. 

Presenters will describe successful MaaS case studies from Denmark and Finland and explain how the MaaS ecosystem works. They will also explore a pilot MaaS program at Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). This webinar will explore how MaaS can meet passenger needs, how MaaS can integrate public and private transportation, and how to connect a variety of transportation options through one mobile app.

This webinar will discuss how to evaluate the field performance of corrugated high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes manufactured with post-consumer and post-industrial recycled materials. The presenter will discuss the Un-Notched Constant Ligament Stress Test, a new test method that provides the basis for a service life prediction model. This model may more accurately determine the service life of corrugated HDPE pipes as well as ensure that the pipes meet a specified service life.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that describes a method in which departments of transportation (DOTs) could manage their road networks in order to predict performance measures for Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) and Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. MAP-21 and the FAST Act require state DOTs to establish and report targets for their pavement conditions. Presenters will discuss how agencies can use a pavement management system to predict the resulting MAP-21/FAST Act performance measures and suggest reasonable targets for these projections based on various scenarios.

TRB Webinar: Seismic Design and Accelerated Bridge Construction July 11, 2018 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM U.S. Eastern 2.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET that discusses the relationship between the use of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) techniques and general seismic design performance, methods, and criteria. ABC is possible by using prefabricated components.  In order for the prefabricated component connections to maintain their strength under large cyclic deformations, it may be required to deviate from current seismic design codes for cast-in-place construction. This webinar will provide an overview and lessons learned from several studies that include different emulative connections in columns, piers, and bridge systems. The presenters will also introduce materials and techniques that may allow seismic designs to perform better than conventional designs.

TRB Webinar: Structural Design of Porous Asphalt Pavements July 17, 2018 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that will discuss the composition and use of porous asphalt pavements. Porous asphalt pavements (PAP) have the potential to increase sustainability and lessen the environmental impact of projects, although PAP is typically used for parking lots and other low volume road applications. Presenters will identify the structural design procedure and representative material structural properties of PAP. They will also explain how PAP can be applied to other projects to ensure it does not deteriorate under heavy traffic loads.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, July 23, 2018, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET that discusses how port authorities are using data portals to make current, actionable information available to the shipping community and the broader supply chain. In the past, port authority websites offered basic statistics about port performance.  Newer data portals provide container status and availability, vessel schedules, chassis supply status, and other information that may lead to efficient operating decisions. The presenters will provide an overview of port data portals and cover data portal projects at the Ports of New York and New Jersey, Los Angeles, and Long Beach.
