    On July 15th, Dr. Chris Pantelides discussed research related to using FRP composites in new bridge structures. Capacity degradation in RC components of existing bridges occurs in harsh weather conditions when corroded steel reinforcement expands, which causes subsequent strength losses in concrete through the development of cracking and spalling.

    The Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) has built a web-based traffic data analysis tool. This traffic analysis tool uses existing traffic signal control devices to collect data 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and 365 days per year. The primary purpose of this pilot project was to develop the agency-to-UGPTI connections and build a compatible traffic analysis tool database for the Bismarck-Mandan MPO to collect data from intersections operated / maintained by City of Bismarck.
