DetailTitle: Framework for a National Database System for Maintenance Actions on Highway Bridges
Resource type: Research Report
Year published: 2010
Publisher: Transportation Research Board
This report presents a potential framework for a National Bridge Maintenance Database (NBMD). This framework provides a uniform format for collecting, reporting, and storing information on bridge maintenance actions. Use of this framework will promote compatibility of maintenance data reported by different agencies and will provide an effective means for using these data in evaluating cost and performance of alternative maintenance applications or as a basis for cost-benefit analysis and evaluation of cost and deterioration models. The material contained in the report should be of immediate interest to state bridge and maintenance engineers and others concerned with the maintenance and management of bridges.
