The Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP 2), in cooperation with the Forum of European National Highway Research Laboratories, is sponsoring an International Symposium on Nondestructive Testing for Design Evaluation and Construction Inspection. The symposium will be held January 18, 2008, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC, immediately following the Transportation Research Board's (TRB) 87th Annual Meeting.
The symposium is designed to gather international feedback as SHRP 2 plans a program of research and development for nondestructive testing (NDT) applied to highway design and construction inspection. A preliminary plan for developing NDT procedures will be discussed at the symposium. Symposium attendees will have the opportunity to provide input on the plan and the direction of the SHRP 2 research and will also be better prepared to respond to subsequent requests for proposals for the NDT research.
The symposium is free, but registration is required. To register, visit www.trb.org.shrp2/SHRPII_Renewal.asp. For more information on the SHRP 2 plan for developing high-speed NDT procedures, visit http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/SHRP2/R06.pdf. For more information on the symposium, contact Monica Starnes, Senior Program Officer for SHRP 2 at TRB, 202-334-1894 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
