Winter 2017 CPATT Newsletter

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Welcome to our Winter 2017 addition of CPATT News!

In this newsletter we highlight some of the various projects underway at CPATT. This includes pavement sustainability, the development of a decision-making tool aimed to incorporate sustainable aspects in the management of pavement networks, and the utilization of data from the Long-term Pavement Performance (LTPP) database, to identify effectiveness of highway maintenance procedures in dry-freeze climates.

We also highlight some events from the past few months which include seminars by Dr. Christiane Raab and Dr. James Tsai, the Graduate Student Poster Symposium, a Lunch and Learn session with the Miller and McAsphalt groups, and the participation of our graduate students in the Transportation Association of Canada student committee meetings.

There are also many special features on some of our current graduate students and the newest Transportation Faculty member, Dr. Chris Bachmann, in our Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, at the University of Waterloo.

The five year plan for 2016-2020, will focus on continuing to develop and expand on external collaboration, and to focus on internal collaborations amongst faculty members in CPATT.

We hope you enjoy reading our newsletter!
