USE OF CAR ROAD METERS IN A ROAD MASS INVENTORY

THE PURPOSES OF A ROAD MASS INVENTORY ARE TO OBTAIN AN OVERALL PICTURE OF ALL CLASSES OF ROADS FROM THE VIEWPOINTS OF STRUCTURE, TRAFFIC, AND SAFETY; TO KEEP TRACK OF THE CONDITION OF THE ROADS OVER A PERIOD OF TIME; TO ESTABLISH NETWORK PRIORITIES WITH A VIEW TO SHORT- AND LONG-TERM PROGRAMMING OF MAINTENANCE AND RECONSTRUCTION; TO RATIONALIZE A BUDGET FOR BITUMINOUS OVERLAY; TO GUIDE THE ROAD ENGINEERS IN REPAIRING AND REBUILDING ROADS IN THEIR REGIONS; AND TO PROVIDE A TOOL FOR PLANNING WITHIN THE PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. THE PRESENT PAPER EXPLAINS THE ROLE PLAYED BY CAR ROAD METERS (CRM) IN THE COLLECTION OF STRUCTURAL DATA, PROVIDES SOME IDEA OF THE PLANNING AND CONTROL OF DATA COLLECTION ACROSS QUEBEC PROVINCE, AND INDICATES THE LIMITATIONS OF THE DEVICE. TWO OF THE FIGURES ARE SYSTEM DIAGRAMS FOR A GLOBAL PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND THE DATA BANK THEREFOR. WITH THE HELP OF MULTIPLE REGRESSION, INDICATIONS WILL BE USED FOR DEFLECTION, ROUGHNESS, DRAINAGE, PATCHING, AND CRACKING. THE COMBINED INDICATIONS FOR EACH ROAD SECTION THAT IS INVENTORIED WILL BE USED IN DRAWING UP A LIST OF STRUCTURAL PRIORITIES FOR THE ENTIRE ROAD NETWORK, WITH CRITERIA GIVEN AND VERIFIED FOR EACH VARIABLE. SYSTEM WORK OBJECTIVES FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS ARE DESCRIBED.
