Reza Jafari, Ph.D., P.E., PTOE, M.ASCE

Reza Jarari

As the newly appointed Chair of the ASCE T&DI security subcommittee (within Safety committee), I would like to invite people to join us in becoming a member.

The mission of the security subcommittee is to encourage the development and use of standards in policies, procedures, software, hardware aimed at increasing the security of the nation's transportation infrastructure and operations.

We would like to focus on dissemination of safety and security information and provide a forum for civil engineers to collaborate in investigating nation's transportation infrastructure and operations vulnerabilities to terrorism. With the help of each member of the subcommittee we can educate and train civil engineers on ways in which civil engineers can incorporate design elements and operating strategies to "harden" infrastructure and operations against terrorist threats and attacks. We can also educate engineers on how to plan for transportation operating continuity and recovery during and after terrorist attacks.
