During the Annual Symposium of National Center for Transportation Infrastructure Durability and Life-Extension, held virtually from December 6 to 7, 2021, College of Engineering, Design and Computing researchers received Outstanding Paper and Presentation Awards. The international event was co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Tran-SET, Simpson Strong-Tie, Transportation Research Board, Washington State University, Case Western Reserve University, the Journal of Infrastructure Preservation and Resilience, and the Bridge Engineering Institute.
Tobby Lie and Farnoush Banaei-Kashani in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering won an Outstanding Poster Award for “i-BM: An Intelligent Bridge Management Tool for Deterioration Forecasting and Anomaly Detection Based on Physics-guided Deep Learning.” Jun Wang and Jimmy Kim from the Department of Civil Engineering won an Outstanding Presentation Award for “Advanced Modeling of Bridge Columns Subjected to Corrosion Damage.”
The National Center for Transportation Infrastructure Durability and Life-Extension, led by Washington State University, is one of seven National University Transportation Centers (UTCs) funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Center serves as the only National UTC with a focus on the USDOT strategic priority of “Improving the Durability and Extending the Life of Transportation Infrastructure.” The vision of the Center includes cost-effective innovations and holistic solutions to enhance multimodal infrastructure durability.
