This conference will present the results of three research projects funded under Call 2013 Ageing Infrastructure, which is helping road administrations develop a suitable technical and commercial governance structure for the future management of ageing infrastructure. The conference will take place on February 14-15, 2018, at the Bluepoint Conference Centre in Brussels, Belgium.
This research programme has focused on two key subjects:
- Understanding risk factors in managing ageing infrastructure
- Developing high speed non-destructive condition assessment of road pavements
The conference will present the results of three research projects.
Project 1: Cross Asset Risk Assessment (X-ARA)
“X-ARA – Cross-Asset-Risk-Assessment” has developed a comprehensive risk assessment framework including a set of guidelines and a practical software tool (X-ARA risk tool) for the network level assessment of asset risks and impacts. The approach took into account the requirements and needs of different stakeholders, considered in an initial desk study, and focused on delivering a working model fit for use by National Road Administrations around Europe.
Project 2: Risk assessment of ageing Infrastructure (RE-GEN)
RE-GEN has provided Road Owners/Managers with best practice tools and methodologies for risk assessment of critical infrastructure elements, such as bridges, retaining structures and steep embankments.
Project 3: Hi-speed survey specifications, explanation and quality (HI-SPEQ)
HI-SPEQ aimed to deliver improvements to the process of describing high-speed survey equipment, specifying the requirement for surveys/survey equipment and the regimes that should be applied to ensure the quality of data delivered. The project also aimed to improve the ability to obtain good value from the measured data by making use of the best derived parameters to assess condition within asset management systems.
Further information on all three projects is available at http://www.cedr.eu/strategic-plan-tasks/research/cedr-call-2013/call-2013-ageing-infrastructure/
