HSRC Meets to Review Progress

On February 6-7, 2004, MCEER’s Highway Seismic Research Council (HSRC) convened in San Francisco to review progress and assess the action plan for finishing work on its current Highway Project research. Project Director George Lee and Technical Director Ian Buckle explained the deliverables that will be produced during the last phase of the project, which is scheduled to be completed in December 2005.

Of particular interest to the Council were three major deliverables:

In addition to these products, there will be a number of technical reports. One example is “Seismic Retrofit Strategies for Long Span Bridges: Case Studies,” which will provide bridge engineers with numerous examples of reducing the risk of bridge component failure due to earthquake forces and subsequent displacement.
Additional deliverables are synthesis reports intended to capture a broad range of knowledge in a given area. Expected reports include: Seismic Risk Analysis, Summary Report on Bridge Fragility, Foundation Design for Special Bridges, Liquefaction and Remediation of Silty Soils, and Post Earthquake Non Destructive Evaluation (NDE) of Jacketed Reinforced Concrete Bridge Columns.

The HSRC is chaired by John Kulicki, President and CEO of Modjeski and Masters, Inc. Members provide a diverse range of related background from government, industry, state DOT’s. Committee members are listed on our web site at http://mceer.buffalo.edu/research/HighwayPrj/094/committees/HSRC.asp.

 

The Bulletin is a free publication offering articles on Center research, cooperative ventures, reports from conferences, educational activities, upcoming events, and reviews of new MCEER publications Spring 2004
