TRB Webinar: Port Data Portals for 21st Century Shipping July 23, 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, 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.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Ports and Channels.

TRB Webinar: Strategic War Games July 26, 2018 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 0.00 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, July 26, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that describes the inaugural Strategic War Game session at the 2018 TRB Annual Meeting. War games are fast-paced simulations involving teams that represent a market or customer, a set of competitors, and a series of other uncontrollable factors or entities. At this year’s TRB Annual Meeting, eight teams worked in an interactive environment to develop pitches for how technology, public policy, and market forces could align to achieve the greatest societal benefits. Judges from across the transportation industry evaluated the pitches based on their energy outcomes, equity, land use, and safety.  Because organizers often pair the war game process with scenario planning for stronger results, the Strategic War Game session built upon the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Foresight 750 Series, which utilized a comprehensive scenario planning exercise.

This webinar will discuss the war game’s goals, its development, and the events during the TRB Annual Meeting session.  The presenters will also describe how attendees can participate in the next war game at the 2019 TRB Annual Meeting.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Strategic Management.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, August 2, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s 08-95: Cell Phone Location Data for Travel Behavior Analysis.

The research evaluates the extent to which cell phone location data and associated products accurately depict travel. The presenters will provide guidelines on the use of the data, also referred to as call detail records (CDRs), to understand and model travel patterns and behavior. CDRs are packaged for different planning and modeling purposes. However, proprietary methods may not allow for a clear evaluation of each data source or associated product. The presenters will evaluate the different products based on the analysis of anonymized cell phone data.

TRB Webinar: Pavement Design Role Reversal: Mixtures Before Design and Construction August 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 Thursday, August 23, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET that will illustrate case studies where asphalt mixtures were specifically designed to meet situations in which conventional design approaches were not appropriate. In conventional practice, the pavement is designed using a set of standard asphalt mixture properties, resulting in a structural pavement thickness to meet traffic, climate, and safety conditions. However, there are times when this approach yields poor pavement performance, such as when high volume roads must be prematurely rehabilitated. This webinar will explore recent advancements in asphalt material modification, mixture design, and performance testing that now allow asphalt mixtures to be specifically formulated and produced to meet challenging pavement design and construction needs.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Structural Requirements of Asphalt Mixtures, Non-Binder Components of Asphalt Mixtures, and Design and Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements.

TRB Webinar: Beyond Volume: Investment Prioritization Methods for Low-Volume Roads August 29, 2018 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, August 29, 2018, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Synthesis 521: Investment Prioritization Methods for Low-Volume Roads.

This webinar will identify current practices used by transportation agencies to make investment decisions about low-volume roads. Low-volume roads can be at a disadvantage within traditional investment prioritization processes that focus on volume-based metrics of benefit and impact. However, low volume roads can also create significant value for the wider economy and society, providing basic access to remote communities, ensuring connectivity for industry to a global economy, and supporting economic development opportunities. The presenters will discuss prioritization approaches that go beyond standard transportation asset management or engineering-type measures, to those that account for broader economic, social, and environmental implications of low volume road projects.
