The National Center for Infrastructure Transformation (NCIT) hosted a webinar on Monday, April 15, 2024, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. CST. The webinar focused on new and emerging trends in geotechnical engineering in two important areas: advances in site characterization, including new tools, the use of multiphase or multi-tool investigations, and the evolution of electronic data exchange and deliverables; and geotechnical asset management, including inventory, condition assessment, and ratings as part of a comprehensive Transportation Asset Management (TAM) framework.
