First UHPC Bridge Deck Overlay on a Major Suspension Bridge in the United States

Michael McDonagh, P.E., P.Eng. and Jordy Padilla, P.E.
Accreditation: 1 Credit Hour

In 2018, the Delaware River and Bay Authority determined that the deck of the first structure was near the end of its service life. Through a 50-year lifecycle cost analysis, a partial-depth deck replacement overlay utilizing Ultra High- Performance Concrete (UHPC) was identified as the preferred alternative to deck replacement and conventional overlays. The pilot project replaced the top 3.75 inches of the deck with UHPC on approximately 25,000 square feet of deck, incorporating overlays on the main suspension bridge, deck truss and steel girder approach structures. The completion of this project set new milestones in the U.S. as the largest use and continuous pour of UHPC overlay.

An Introduction to Physical Asset Management

Justin Furch, Technology Practice Leader
Accreditation: 1 Credit Hour

Physical asset management, which differs from financial or software asset management, is an important and often complicated topic to most organizations. Focusing on increased efficiency and transparency, a well-defined asset management system will provide an organization with their current condition and valuation to support these needs, as well as provide a foundation for budget planning and goal setting. Asset management is one of the first steps in developing risk assessments and resiliency. It can be incorporated into every part of an organizations’ operations and will provide immediate value when fully adopted. This presentation will cover the basic components of asset management, what it provides, why it is so important, and how to get started.

Introduction to common statutory and regulatory ethics rules; review of the National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics with examples of common ethics rules, illustrative case studies to consider, with emphasis on the similarities and difference between governmental and professional society sanctions; practical reasons for ethical practice, how unethical practice can present professional liability, legal, licensure, moral and public health, safety and welfare issues.
