Washington State University National Center for Transportation Infrastructure Durability & Life-Extension (TriDurLE)

2021 TriDurLE Symposium Student Poster Competition

2021 TriDurLE Virtual Symposium on Transportation Infrastructure Innovations for Durability and Resilience (TIIDR)


About the Conference

The Transportation Infrastructure Durability and Life Extension Center (TriDurLE) was established in 2019 and is funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) through the University Transportation Center (UTC). It is the only national center focused on improving the durability and extending the life of transportation infrastructure. America’s aging infrastructure calls for holistic approaches to infrastructure management. The TriDurLE 2021 Symposium on “Transportation Infrastructure Innovations for Durability and Resilience” is the first symposium of this national UTC center. As part of the symposium TriDurLE is organizing a student poster competition.

Student Poster Competition Rules

The objectives of the student poster competition are to promote the study of durability and life extension of transportation infrastructure.  In addition, the competition is expected to build professional relationships between students, academia, DOT personnel, consultants, and practitioners.

Student Poster Topics

The student poster topics will include, but are not limited to one or more of the following:

  • Management: Asset management and performance management for enhanced durability and life-extension of transportation infrastructure
  • Monitoring: Condition monitoring, remote sensing, and the use of GPS for enhanced durability and life-extension of transportation infrastructure
  • Addressing corrosion of transportation infrastructure
  • Addressing aging and other materials-related durability distresses of transportation infrastructure through the use of new materials, technologies, and construction methodologies.
  • Addressing natural hazards and extreme events that threaten the durability and service life of transportation infrastructure
  • Intervention and rehabilitation of transportation infrastructure through advanced materials, technologies and construction methodologies


Students must prepare a 5-slide poster providing an overview of their paper. Along with the poster provide a 5-min video as a short presentation/highlight of the poster. This replaces the in-person poster presentation since the symposium is virtual. The video could be created using the record option of the 5-slide Powerpoint presentation.
