    This webinar will present the research findings of the Mountain Plains Consortium Research Project 480. This research was based on innovative geometric designs as a solution to the challenge of increased traffic volume with limited resources. This particular study focused on diverging diamond interchanges.

    The potential benefits of this project would be new procedures and guidelines for bridge hydraulic analysis. The case studies in this report would serve as detailed examples on creating and using 2D flow models for bridge hydraulic analysis, including field data collection, mesh generation, model calibration, and analysis and interpretation of modeling results.

    The ultimate objective of this project was to develop widely accepted recommendations on self-consolidating concrete (SCC) mixture design for its use in WisDOT bridge projects. This project investigated the effects of material constituents on the material properties of trial SCC mixtures made from precasters in Wisconsin.
