Webinar: Data-Driven Safety Analysis (DDSA) for Local Roads

Severe crashes are often widely dispersed over local and rural road networks.  Systemic analysis identifies locations that are at risk for severe crashes, even if there is not a high crash frequency. This webinar will present low-cost countermeasures and useful tools to analyze crash and roadway data to predict the safety impacts and allow local … Read moreWebinar: Data-Driven Safety Analysis (DDSA) for Local Roads

Learn about Ultra-High Performance Concrete for Prefabricated Bridge Element Connections

Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) can be used to create simple, strong, long-lasting connections needed for successful construction using prefabricated bridge elements (PBEs). Compared to many solutions in current use, UHPC allows for small, simple-to-construct connections that require less volume of field-cast concrete and do not require post-tensioning. The mechanical properties of UHPC also allow for redesign … Read moreLearn about Ultra-High Performance Concrete for Prefabricated Bridge Element Connections
