                       Washington, D.C.
Welcome to the
TRB Annual Meeting
We are pleased to provide this Wisconsin Guide to the TRB 86th Annual Meeting. On the following pages
we highlight the contributions of WisDOT practitioners and Wisconsin university researchers who will be
among this year’s presenters and session leaders.

The TRB Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for some 10,000 transportation professionals from around
the world to exchange information, knowledge and insights on research that can be put to work for a better
transportation system. We hope this guide will facilitate dialogue among Wisconsin participants in the annual
meeting, and among all Wisconsin transportation professionals in industry, academia and public agencies.

Many of the papers listed in this guide were made possible by federal and state research funds awarded to the
Wisconsin Highway Research Program, the Midwest Regional University Transportation Center, and the
Wisconsin Traffic Operations and Safety Laboratory. We note these papers throughout the guide and provide
Web links for additional information. On pages 11–12 we group presentations by program: WHRP, MRUTC
and TOPS.

Finally, we hope you will join us at the Wisconsin Transportation Reception, hosted by the Transportation
Development Association of Wisconsin from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, an opportunity to relax with fellow
Wisconsin transportation professionals. Both presenters and attendees are welcome.

                                    Nicholas Hornyak is a graduate student at Marquette University pursuing
      a Ph.D. in civil engineering. Nick’s research interests include pavement materials, instrumentation and struc-
      tural mechanics, and he is part of a research team working on a flexible pavement instrumentation project on
      Interstate 43 just north of Milwaukee. Funded by WHRP, the project involves recording real-time data from
      a variety of embedded sensors to characterize the pavement’s structural behavior.

      Nick received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in civil engineering from Marquette University in 2003 and
      2005, respectively. His master’s degree thesis involved studying self-consolidating concrete and its effects on
      the development of steel reinforcement.

      Nick has many years of construction experience in the concrete industry, and intends to pursue a career in
      teaching at the university level. He is involved in community service work with Habitat for Humanity and
      Cathedral Preparatory School in Erie, Pa., and traveled to Guatemala as part of Marquette’s International
      Service Learning Program. While there he played a significant role in the design and construction of a con-
      crete bridge in a small village.

      Nick is the primary author of a paper in Poster Session 245 on Monday, January 22: “Asphalt Pavement
      Instrumentation: The Quest for Truth.”
