TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, June 8, 2017, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that will explore using traffic speed deflection devices for pavement structural evaluation at the network level. Presenters will focus on findings from a U.S. Federal Highway Administrationstudythat assessed, evaluated, and validated the capacity of deflection devices in order to determine their readiness for implementation. They will also discuss a pooled fundstudythat demonstrated this technology, and present the major findings, conclusions, and recommendations of these efforts.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Pavement Condition Evaluation, Pavement Management Systems, and Pavement Structural Modeling and Evaluation. Participants must register in advance of the webinar, and there is a fee for non-TRB Sponsor or non-TRB Sustaining Affiliate employees. A certificate for 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be provided to attendees who register and attend the webinar as an individual.
