New NHI Courses Available in 2002

Portland Cement Concrete Pavement Evaluation and Rehabilitation (Course #131062) presents state-of-the-practice and state-of-the-art techniques to identify the causes and patterns of different types of distress in portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement and techniques for rehabilitation selection, design, and construction that can be applied for the various types of distress.

Hot Mix Asphalt Pavement Evaluation and Rehabilitation (Course #131063) presents state-of-the-practice and state-of-the-art techniques to identify the causes and patterns of different types of pavement distress in hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavement, and techniques for rehabilitation selection, design, and construction that can be applied for the various types of distress.

Geotechnical and Foundation Engineering: Module 5 - Rock Slopes (Course #132035) is the fifth in a series of 11 modules for the four-week advanced level course "Geotechnical and Foundation Engineering" (#132016). This course is offered as either an individual stand-alone course or as part of the overall four-week course. The four-week course will cover all aspects of geotechnical and foundation engineering related to the design and construction monitoring of surface transportation facilities.

Use of Critical Path Method (CPM) for Estimating, Scheduling and Timely Completion (Course #134049) is designed to educate state highway, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and industry project staff about the availability of effective construction and maintenance planning and scheduling tools that can help in providing visual representation of current project status, completed tasks, and expected completion of all activities.

CORSIM Traffic Simulation Model Training (Course #137022) provides an understanding of CORSIM - a tool that simulates traffic and traffic control conditions on combined surface street and freeway networks. CORSIM determines how traffic engineering and control strategies impact a prescribed network's operational performance as expressed in terms of various measures of effectiveness (MOEs).

Project Management for Advanced Transportation Systems (Course #137026) provides training related to fundamental principles and practices of good project management; steps to be taken for planning, design,and implementation of transportation systems projects; types of project management tools available for managing transportation systems projects; and basic skills required to be a good project manager.

Turbo Architecture (Course #137029) provides training on the Turbo Architecture tool, which is a high-level, interactive software training program to assist transportation planners and systems integrators in the development of regional and project architectures using the National Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Architecture as a starting point. Turbo Architecture helps users integrate multiple project architectures both with one other and with a regional architecture.

Fundamentals of Road Weather Management (Course #137030) provides training to help develop tools and strategies for addressing road weather problems. Course topics include an overview of road weather problems and associated costs; basic meteorology for non-meteorologists; strategies for addressing road weather problems; and road weather solutions unique to maintenance management, traffic management, traveler information, and emergency management.
