The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will host a webinar on Wednesday, March 27, from 1:00 PM-2:30 PM ET on Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. This technology, featured as part of the second Strategic Highway Research Program’s (SHRP2) Techniques to Fingerprint Construction Materials (R06B) product, can help transportation agencies probe specific construction materials in real time, saving time and money.
Webinar participants will receive a general overview of SHRP2, get an introduction to the R06B FTIR technology, and learn about FTIR applications (baseline characterization of asphalt binders, polymer in asphalt binders, fingerprinting of antistripping agents and other admixtures, etc.). There is no fee to register, but participation is capped at 120 registrants. Contact Kate Kurgan at email@example.com with any questions about this webinar. PDH hours will be available for those who participate in this webinar.
SHRP2 is a partnership of FHWA, AASHTO, and TRB. TRB completed the research, and now FHWA and AASHTO are jointly implementing the resulting SHRP2 Solutions that will help the transportation community increase safety, enhance productivity, boost efficiency, and improve the reliability of the nation’s highway system. The SHRP2 program created 63 solutions that have been implemented in 430 projects across the country to date
