Highway Technology Calendar
The following events provide opportunities to learn more about products and technologies for accelerating infrastructure innovations.
Transportation Research Board (TRB) 89th Annual Meeting
More than 3,000 presentations in nearly 600 sessions will spotlight current developments in transportation research, policy, and practice. The theme for the 2010 meeting is "Investing in Our Transportation Future—Bold Ideas to Meet Big Challenges."
2010 Concrete Bridge Conference: Achieving Safe, Smart, and Sustainable Bridges
Conference sponsors include the National Concrete Bridge Council and the Portland Cement Association. Key topics to be featured at the conference include sustainable bridges, nondestructive evaluation for bridges, durable bridge decks, smart bridges, and innovative bridge design and construction.
First International Conference on Pavement Preservation
An array of pavement preservation issues will be featured at the conference, including benefits of pavement preservation, treatments for flexible and rigid pavements, strategy selection, integration of pavement preservation into pavement management systems, promotion of pavement preservation to the public and elected officials, and funding.
2010 Design-Build in Transportation Conference
Join transportation leaders in discussing lessons learned in the use of the design-build project delivery method for transportation projects. The discussions will cover choosing the right delivery method, contracting approaches, risk allocation, and performance contracting. The conference is cosponsored by the Design-Build Institute of America, FHWA, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and various industry groups.
The Fifth International Conference on Bridge Maintenance, Safety, and Management
Organized by the International Association for Bridge Maintenance and Safety, the conference will cover such topics as measurement and monitoring, fatigue analysis, repair and strengthening, bridge testing and assessment, advanced materials technology, and innovative construction technology. Sponsors include AASHTO, FHWA, TRB, Pennsylvania Infrastructure Technology Alliance, American Concrete Institute, and Lehigh University.
International Conference on Sustainable Concrete Pavements: Practices, Challenges, and Directions
The conference will present innovative processes for achieving sustainable concrete pavements throughout the pavement's life cycle. Topics will include existing technologies, emerging research, approaches to measuring energy and environmental impact, user considerations, and international practices and experiences. Case studies from around the world will also be presented. The conference is being organized by FHWA and the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center as part of the technology transfer efforts of FHWA's Advanced Concrete Pavement Technology Products Program.
