Bridge inspection data is an essential step in the bridge asset management operation and the bridge management system. As such, a reliability-based, holistic framework was proposed to effectively collect reliable data and perform data fusion and information fusion of sensory data used for element-level...

 

A high-dimensional clustering-based sampling method for roadway asset condition inspection is proposed in this study. The method complements existing literature by selecting sample roadway segments that contain multiple types of assets (e.g., signage, shoulder work, pavement marking, etc.) for the accurate...

 

The current legally required two-year inspection interval for most bridges is not an efficient system for conducting inspections, because many bridges do not require inspections this frequently, while others would benefit from more frequent monitoring. The research presented herein is based on the premise...

 

Maintenance management has relied heavily on collecting asset condition information to plan maintenance activities and budget allocation. Data collection is often conducted on a sampling basis because of resource constraints. There is thus a perceived need for the development of an effective sampling...

 

This research project attempts to ease the data collection burden of the North Dakota Department of Transportation's (NDDOT) maintenance manager, while increasing and improving pavement condition information. The pilot project used handheld computer and global positioning system (GPS) technology to capture...

 

This study was conducted to determine if efficiencies could be gained through the process of standardizing data storage mechanisms to permit diversity at the operating level while maintaining data compatibility for aggregation at higher levels in the organization. Transportation agencies use many computer...

 

A variety of computer tools are being used by UDOT to serve diverse maintenance management needs. Many of the tools are individually tailored for a specific purpose and lack the functionality to share data with other applications. This has resulted in the establishment of numerous databases which are...

 
Gravel Shortage Options (Dec 1996, MPC-96-65)

This study primarily examines the extent of gravel shortage in North Dakota and identifies and evaluates plausible alternatives. The specific objectives covered in this report are to: 1) assess the severity of the gravel shortage in North Dakota; 2) identify common gravel sources in North Dakota and...

 
Rural Road Condition Survey Guide (Jul 1995, MPC-SD95-16-G1)
ERES Consultants, Inc.

This Guide has been developed to help provide a consistent means of assessing rural roadway conditions, both within a county and statewide. The roadway evaluation methodology described in this Guide will provide county highway agencies with a uniform and consistent means of defining pavement and roadway...
