Author(s) and Affiliation(s):
Teresa M. Adams, Joseph Barut and Robert Sianipar Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI
 
 
Principal Investigator:
Teresa M. Adams
Sponsor(s):
Wisconsin Department of Transportation
Research Start Date:
August 1, 1994
Expected Completion Date:
June 30, 1996
Research Objectives:
The objectives of this study are to adapt and evaluate the Pontis network level BMS for multiperiod planning in Wisconsin, establish condition state transition probabilities for maintenance actions, estimate cost of bridge maintenance actions, evaluate the cost-effectiveness of alternative maintenance actions, and to evaluate the project level effectiveness of recommended network level maintenance policies.
Expected Products or Deliverables:
Recommended cost and condition state transition probabilities for maintenance actions on 25 bridge elements in Wisconsin; methods for evaluating the quality of estimated cost data; the cost effectiveness of alternative maintenance actions; and the sensitivity of network level policies to variations in cost, project factors, and condition state transition.
