Project Title:

Review of Federal Highway Administration Infrastructure R&D
PIN: TRB-SASP-17-04        

Major Unit:

Transportation Research Board

Sub Unit:
RSO: Godwin, Stephen

Subject/Focus Area: Transportation and Infrastructure

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee will advise the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Infrastructure R&D Program regarding priorities in terms of the technical tools and products that state departments of transportation need to maintain and improve the performance of their pavements, bridges, and other structures.  FHWA's program includes gathering data on long-term infrastructure performance; structural design; material testing, evaluation, specification and mixture design, and optimization for both traditional and innovative materials; performance evaluation and prediction; construction; life-cycle cost analysis; environmental and sustainability aspects and implications; preservation of bridges, tunnels, culverts, geotechnical elements; aerodynamic and hydraulic engineering guidance; design and mitigation for extreme events (e.g., seismic, blast, and scour); advanced materials and structural systems; tools for the assessment and condition monitoring of highway structures; and data-driven performance management and preservation tools.  The FHWA and its contractors are designing tools and predictive models for highway infrastructure owners to use to maintain and improve their assets; the committee’s role will be to comment on such products as appropriate.  The committee will meet annually to interact with FHWA and other stakeholders and issue an annual assessment in the form of a letter report.

Project Duration: 60 months
