Data and data analytics are critical to the future of bridge foundation design and performance. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern that will focus on three areas important to the future of bridge foundation design--reducing risk, site characteristics and its prediction for foundation design using emerging technologies, and geotechnical data storage and management and its importance.

This webinar is related to Workshop 1436 Exploring the Role of Data Interchange and Artificial Intelligence in Future Bridge and Foundation Design, Performance and Resiliency as presented at TRB’s 2022 Annual Meeting.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committee on Foundations of Bridges and Other Structures.

Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100. Sign into to view registration information.
