TRB Webinar: Using Pavement Management to Set and Analyze Targets for Federal Reporting July 10, 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 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 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 Webinar: Cell Phone Location Data for Travel Behavior Analysis August 02, 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 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.
