Geotechnical and Bridge Design Workshop: New Madrid Seismic Zone Experience
Matching Research Agency
Missouri Department of Transportation
To conduct a workshop to transfer the research results from the UMR earthquake hazards mitigation project into the hands of practitioners in the Mid-American states.
A technology transfer workshop will be held in Cape Girardeau on October 28-29, 2004 to disseminate the research results from the UMR earthquake hazards mitigation research program. The workshop will cover the bridge design related topics in geophysics, seismology, geotechnical to structural engineering. Attempt will be made to work step-by-step through a complete design cycle for bridge systems, highlighting the contributions from the UMR efforts in each step .
Research results/findings will be implemented in actual design of bridge systems.
