Deterioration Cycles of Bridge Decks

This graph depicts an unspecified bridge element’s progression over time, with deterioration and recovery relative to observed maintenance (OM). The vertical y-axis is labeled Condition and is numbered 0, at the bottom, up through 9, at the top. The horizontal x-axis is labeled Data Year and is marked at 2-year intervals, beginning in 1983 and ending in 2006. At the top, parallel to the x-axis, is a line labeled Cycle 1 without OM, spanning data years 1983–1993. To the right of that line is another line, also parallel to the x-axis, labeled Cycle 2 with OM, spanning data years 1993–2001. To the right of that is another line labeled Cycle 3 with OM, spanning 2001–2006. The first data point for the element is in 1983, in condition 9. In 1984 and 1985, the element also is in condition 9. A short vertical line is on the 1985 data point, indicating a subsequent change in condition. In 1986 the element is in condition 7, as it is in 1987 and 1988 as well. A short vertical line is on the 1988 data point, indicating a subsequent change in condition. In 1989 the element is in condition 6. In 1990 the element is in condition 6, and there is a short vertical line on the data point. In 1991 the element is in condition 5, and there is a short vertical line on the data point. In 1992 the element is in condition 5. There is a short vertical line on the data point indicating a transition in condition state, and a box labeled A indicating the lower condition state within a deterioration cycle, followed by OM at that time. In 1993 the element is in condition 8. There is also a box labeled B at the data point that indicates the start of a new deterioration cycle. In 1994 the element is in condition 8, and there is a short vertical line on the data point, indicating a subsequent change in condition. In 1995 the element is in condition 7. In 1996 the element is in condition 7. In 1997 the element is in condition 7, and there is a short vertical line on the data point, indicating a subsequent change in condition. In 1998 the element is in condition 6. In 1999 the element is in condition 6. In 2000 the element is in condition 6; there is a short vertical line on the data point and a box labeled A, indicating that OM occurred at that time. In 2001 the element is in condition 8. There is also a box labeled B at the data point that indicates the start of a new deterioration cycle. In 2002 the element is in condition 8, and there is a short vertical line on the data point, indicating a subsequent change in condition. In 2003 the element is in condition 6.

Survival Curves for Bridge Decks in Condition 9 Without Observed Maintenance for Different ADT Classes

This graph depicts the relative survival curves for decks in condition 9, comparing decks with varying degrees of vehicle traffic, without observed maintenance. At the bottom is a color-coded key: the FHWA researchers plotted the bridges with ADT of 100 or less in blue; they plotted bridges with ADT of 101–1,000 in red; they plotted bridges with ADT of 1,001–10,000 in grey; they plotted bridges with ADT of 10,001–100,000 in purple; and they plotted bridges with ADT greater than 100,000 in magenta. Immediately above the key is the x-axis, labeled Time in Condition, with intervals numbered 0–23 for the years covered in the study. The y-axis is labeled Survival and is marked off in tenths, 0–1 (0.0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and so on).
