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.
