Fuzzy Logic Techniques For Maintenance Assessment |
Thispaper discusses the development of a fuzzy logic-based system of pavementcondition rating and maintenance-needs assessment for a road network of anindustrial park. These two aspects constitute the backbone of the entireproject that was undertaken with the aim to streamline the pavement conditionsurvey and reporting procedure, and the decision making process of pavementmaintenance. Fuzzy mathematics offers a convenient tool to incorporatesubjective analysis and uncertainty in pavement condition rating andmaintenance-needs assessment. Computer programs have been developed for PCoperation that allows for easy revisions of the assessment basis, and has amodule for training of new staff.
