A handbook of pavement management, vol 1: principles and practice of a management system based on a visual rating of pavement condition

Volume 1 develops a management system for maintenance and rehabilitation management of pavements. Such a system can be considered as a logical assessment of information and procedures necessary to permit optimizing the maintenance and rehabilitation procedures. The purpose of a management system is to provide a method whereby, with the proper input, the most cost effective strategy for pavement maintenance can be determined. The system is based on a visual rating of the pavement condition and incorporates the opinions of some 30 municipal engineers who, collectively, represent some 500 man years of experience in the design, construction and maintenance of all types of road pavements. A step by step procedure is developed together with appropriate data recording sheets (a).
