When developing geotechnical asset management programs, there is a great interest in methods used to assess the condition of various assets to allow for trade-off analysis and budget allocation. TRB hosted a webinar on Monday, April 24, 2023 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that focused on qualitative models to assess conditional and performance of in-service assets and forecast remaining service life for geotechnical management applications. Presenters shared current practices and gaps for assessing the condition of culverts and other geotechnical assets.  

This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Culverts, Buried Bridges and Soil Structure Interaction.

The slides are available. Please contact for a link to the recording. There may be a $90 fee.
