Condition-based Inspection and Restoration Scheduling of Pavement and Bridge Systems for Improved Post-disaster Infrastructure Systems Recovery

The key objectives of this proposed research effort are: 1) Develop techniques to support recovery efforts through joint post-disaster scheduling of inspection and roadway/bridge restoration activities; 2) Create capabilities for exploiting updated, damage condition information received from sensor technologies and designed inspection actions; 3) Ensure computational efficiency necessary for large-scale settings with hundreds or thousands of roadway links and bridges; 4) Take into consideration the existence and pre-event location of multiple, inspection and repair crews (pavements, bridges and other infrastructures) with stakeholders representing different assets with potentially competing objectives; 5) Account for impacts on overall traffic system performance; 6) Explicitly recognize effects of downtime from potentially interacting inspection or restoration actions on traffic system performance and accessibility; and 7) Describe how developed mathematical techniques can be utilized in practice.
