Dr. John J. Myers, professor of civil engineering and director of the Missouri Center for Transportation Innovation, served as chair of the 16th International Fiber Reinforced Polymer Reinforcement Concrete Structures Conference held Saturday, March 23, and Sunday, March 24, in New Orleans. The conference had more than 400 registered attendees, a record-setting number of participants from 19 countries.

In addition to organizing this conference over the last two years, Myers presented two technical papers titled “Review and Analysis of FRP Bond Lengths from Pull-out Testing Database with Reduced Embedment Lengths” and “Flexural Strength and Behavior of Inverted-T Precast Concrete Beam Reinforced with Modified Smooth CFRP Bars.” He also served as editor and author of the American Concrete Institute Special Publication 360 with 52 peer-reviewed manuscripts as part of the event along with the organization of a student poster session. Missouri S&T and the Missouri Center for Transportation Innovation were sponsors of the international conference.
