Office:   Office of Infrastructure Research and Development
Team:   Infrastructure Analysis and Construction Team [HRDI-20]
Program:   Infrastructure Earmark
Project detail
Roadmap/Focus area(s):   Infrastructure Research and Technology Strategic Plan and Roadmap
Project Description:   Advancing the state of practice in pavement structure health monitoring, including optimization of the field’s data collection/storage and integration of the collected data with the databases of the agencies.
Goals:   Advancing the state of practice in pavement structure health monitoring.
Product Type:   Research report
Test Methodology:   Sensor system
Expected Benefits:   Highway agencies will be able to facilitate more effective pavement maintenance and rehabilitation/preservation decision making by detecting possible damage, monitoring mechanical load history, and predicting the fatigue life of the monitored pavements. Data would be collected from the sensors by driving over them and then, with a global positioning system, the condition data could be linked to a pavement management system.
