Abstract

This project will address three research areas. The first covers the collection and integration of bridge structural performance data using strain gages and basic data acquisition devices. The second area deals with the development of a computerized system to capture bridge visual inspection data. The last deals with using PONTIS bridge management software to integrate the data for the purpose of developing an integrated bridge asset management program.
