DEVELOPING A PAVEMENT FEEDBACK DATA SYSTEM

THE PLANNING AND INITIAL DEVELOPMENT OF A PAVEMENT FEEDBACK DATA SYSTEM, AS A PART OF A LARGER PROJECT, "THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FEASIBLE APPROACH TO PAVEMENT DESIGN AND RESEARCH" ARE DESCRIBED. THE GENERAL PRINCIPLES UNDERLYING DATA SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT AND USE ARE PRESENTED AND THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONAL AND OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE PAVEMENT DATA SYSTEM ARE DISCUSSED. INTEGRATION OF THE SYSTEM WITH OTHER DATA ACQUISITION AND PROCESSING OPERATIONS OF THE TEXAS HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT ARE CONSIDERED. A SET OF FACTORS HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AND CATEGORIZED INTO A MASTER FLE AND SIX SUBFILES. THESE FACTORS HAVE BEEN CODED AND CODING FORMS HAVE BEEN PREPARED. SEVERAL EXAMPLE SETS OF DATA RETRIEVAL FROM THE SYSTEM HAVE BEEN PRESENTED. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT FUTURE WORK IN THE PROJECT SHOULD BE PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH DEVELOPING A SAMPLING PLAN AND GUIDES, WITH CONTINUING SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND WITH A TRIAL IMPLEMENTATION OF THE DATA SYSTEM. /AUTHOR/
