Guidelines for Collecting, Applying, and Maintaining Pavement Condition Data at Airports

This report provides guidance for airports on best practices in collecting and using airfield pavement condition data. As part of the pavement management process the data are used to determine the Pavement Condition Index (PCI), which in turn is used to inform and improve operations, maintenance, and capital improvement programs. The availability of guidance to help airports determine the best approaches to collect, apply, and maintain pavement condition data has not kept pace with rapid changes in the associated technology, and this report was developed to address the need for guidance on the strategies available for pavement condition data collection, use, and storage. Decision tools (decision trees and matrices) are used to present appropriate strategies. Many airports approach this topic differently, and with new technologies deployed, there will continue to be a broad range of practices. The guidelines presented will help those involved in airport pavement condition data to sort through associated decisions related to those practices.
