Friday, January 29, 2021. 2:00 PM. Webinar: Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation Seminar Series: Studying Damages from Hurricane Maria to Improve Future Infrastructure Resilience. Gustavo Pacheco-Crosetti, Rutgers University. Sponsored by Rutgers Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation. More information here.

In this free webinar, CAIT-affiliated researcher Dr. Gustavo Pacheco will provide an overview of the damage done to the island by Hurricane Maria as well as its long-term impacts to date. He will also discuss latest research from PUPR quantifying this damage and case studies of traffic signs, vehicular bridges, and other important pieces of infrastructure that were studied. These insights have the potential help engineers to better incorporate resilience into construction projects and asset management practices considering natural disasters and storm events. Dr. Pacheco will also discuss study results, developed materials and guidelines, as well next steps in the research.
