91st Annual Meeting of the Transportation
Research Board: ITI hosts Half-Day seminar, Student of the year Christian Hoover, Schofer Receives Roy Crum Award

ITI was well represented at the 91st Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board in January of 2012. Research Engineer David Kosnik co-hosted a half day workshop titled "Practical Health Monitoring for Transportation Structures." The workshop focused on practical health-monitoring technologies for bridges and ancillary highway structures, providing state-of-the-practice information for bridge owners regarding implementable health-monitoring strategies that can be applied to ensure safety and effectively manage aging transportation structures. Topics included instrumentation, systems, software durability, and successful case studies of technology applications.

Our director, Joseph Schofer, received the Roy W. Crum Distinguished Service Award in recognition of his outstanding achievement in transportation research. Schofer is pictured above receiving his award.
