FHWA Funds Research on Earthquake and Multi-Hazard Protection of Highway Bridges

Project Advisory Panel

FHWA logoNew research is underway by MCEER investigators on earthquake and multiple hazard protection of bridges. The project is targeted to support the long-term bridge safety, reliability, and security, research and development program developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Research is focused on four major areas:

The recent professional development seminar on Accelerated Bridge Construction (see review below) is part of the second area, where engineering practitioners came to provide their input to the research team, and then shared their expertise with the broader engineering community.

The project advisory panel, chaired by FHWA’s Dr. W. Phil Yen, held its first meeting in Washington D.C. August 11, 2005. The Panel’s mission is to provide research direction and emphasis, help ensure that research results satisfy the needs of end users and bridge designers, recommend individuals to serve as task advisors/partners, and other issues as required.

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 Summer 2005
