||ASTM To Host Symposium on Pavement Distress Data Collection
A half-day seminar on Pavement Distress Data Collection will be
presented Dec. 6, 8:00-11:45 a.m. in Orlando, Fla., at the Omni
Rosen Hotel by ASTM Subcommittee E17.41 on Pavement Management
under Committee E17 on Vehicle-Pavement Systems.
The symposium will provide current perspectives on pavement distress
data collection, which continues to be an integral component of
the pavement management decision process. Significant advances
have occurred in areas of pavement management over the past few
decades, however, pavement distress data collection continues
to struggle with data selection, use, most efficient and/or effective
method of collection, and reliability of results.
An address by Carl Rascoe, Wavetech, Baton Rouge, La., on the
Subcommittee E17.41 vision, will kick off the following program:
Utilization of Pavement Distress Data: Charles Schiavino, Naval
Facilities Engineering Service Center, Lester, Pa., and Alison
Bradbury, Ministry of Transportation, Downsview, Ontario, Canada.
Data Collection: Automated Perspective, by Wade Gramling, CGH
Pavement Engineering, Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Manual Perspective
by Bob Briggs, Dynatest, Starke, Fla.
Repeatability: LTPP Perspective, by Gonzalo Rada, Law PCS, Beltsville,
Md., and Washington/Oregon Distress Study by Roger Smith, Texas
Transportation Institute, College Station.
