A Self-Study Course on Terrorism-Related Risk Management of Highway Infrastructure (2005)
Transportation Research Board
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 525: Surface Transportation Security, Volume 4: A Self-Study Course on Terrorism-Related Risk Management of Highway Infrastructure is designed to provide a general background in terrorism-related risk management for highway infrastructure. The report is also designed to assist bridge and structures engineers and managers in identifying critical highway assets and their potential vulnerabilities, developing possible countermeasures to prevent or ameliorate threats to such assets, and determining the capital and operating costs of such countermeasures. This volume of NCHRP Report 525 is presented in PowerPoint and portable document format (pdf) on CRP-CD-55.
NCHRP Report 525: Surface Transportation Security is a series in which relevant information is assembled into single, concise volumes--each pertaining to a specific security problem and closely related issues. The volumes focus on the concerns that transportation agencies are addressing when developing programs in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the anthrax attacks that followed. Future volumes of the report will be issued as they are completed.
