undergraduate are also welcome to submit an abstract.
Presentations on concrete materials, structural design,
construction, or other concrete-related issues are all
welcome. A Special Publication is planned.

one‐half page; 3) presenter ’s first and last name, title if any,
affiliation, mailing address, phone, and e-mail; 4) each
co‐author’s first and last name, title if any, affiliation,
mailing address, phone, and e-mail; 5) research faculty
advisor’s first and last name, title if any, affiliation, mailing
address, phone, and e-mail; 6) a statement by the research
faculty advisor confirming that the research was conducted
predominately by the undergraduate student(s); and 7) a
statement by the research faculty advisor confirming that
the presenter will be able to attend the convention in

Data Fusion of Nondestructive Evaluation
Techniques to Evaluate Corrosion in
Reinforced Concrete Elements
Meeting: Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual
Meeting, January 2020, Washington, DC.
Solicited: The TRB Corrosion Committee (AHD45) is
soliciting papers regarding the data fusion of nondestructive
evaluation techniques to identify and evaluate corrosion in
reinforced concrete structures, such as bridge decks,
abutments, and girders. Corrosion of structural materials has
been proven to significantly impact the service life of
structures and can lead to expensive maintenance needs in the
future. When left undiagnosed, corrosion can lead to
significant safety concerns. A suite of nondestructive
evaluation techniques has been applied in the recent decades
with varying degrees of success in characterizing corrosion.
An important lesson learned is the fact that no one technique
can adequately evaluate corrosion. Thus, the goal of this
session is to focus on combining different nondestructive
techniques to address corrosion activity in reinforced concrete
structures and not rely on a single nondestructive testing
technique to investigate the state of corrosion.
Deadline: Full manuscripts are due by August 1, 2019.
