When developing geotechnical asset management programs, there is a great interest in methods used to assess the condition of various assets to allow for trade-off analysis and budget allocation. TRB will host a webinar on Monday, April 24, 2023 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that will focus on qualitative models to assess conditional and performance of in-service assets and forecast remaining service life for geotechnical management applications. Presenters will share current practices and gaps for assessing the condition of culverts and other geotechnical assets.  

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Culverts, Buried Bridges and Soil Structure Interaction.

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. Contact Patrice Davenport to inquire about becoming a TRB sponsor or global affiliate organization.

A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
