NDE/NDT Structural Materials Technology for Highways and Bridges (SMT) and the International Symposium on Non-Destructive Testing in Civil Engineering (NDT-CE) 2018

Hyatt Regency New Brunswick
New Brunswick, NJ
27 - 29 August 2018

This joint conference is the one event in 2018 where international researchers, manufacturers, service providers, owners of structures and those active in training, validation and standardization of nondestructive evaluation for civil infrastructure will discuss state-of-the-art as well as innovative NDE technologies, advanced modeling and best practices. The joint conference provides an open space for exchange of ideas, new developments, testing needs from owners, asset management and research.

Time on Monday will be allotted for attendees to visit the Bridge Evaluation and Accelerated Structural Testing Laboratory, aka the BEAST, at Rutgers University. The BEAST uses extreme traffic and environmental loading, 24/7, to simulate decades of wear and tear in just months, giving data about deterioration and performance sooner than ever imagined. Transportation on Monday will be provided to and from the Hyatt Hotel.

Program Chairs

  • Dr. Hoda Azari, US Federal Highway Administration
  • Dr. Franklin Moon, Rutgers University
  • Dr. Ernst Niederleithinger, BAM

Unauthorized Housing Warning

Unfortunately, it is now common practice for unauthorized companies to claim to be official housing providers for trade shows and other large events, including ASNT conferences. Usually called “room poachers,” these companies target exhibitors and attendees with aggressive emails or phone calls claiming to offer supposed discounts on hotel rooms or incorrectly stating that room blocks are nearing or at capacity. The room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.

Please be vigilant if contacted by any company or service that implies or claims to be an official housing provider for ASNT. ASNT IS NOT affiliated with third-party travel agents, wholesalers or other outside agencies claiming to offer hotel reservations. The only way to book your rooms for ASNT is to use the channels provided on our website. If you are contacted by one of these pirate companies, please notify ASNT staff immediately. Below are company names that have been provided to us by our members, attendees and exhibitors. This list is not complete and new company names will be added as we are made aware of them.
