RES2019-08: Rating and Inventory of TDOT Retaining Walls

The purpose of the project is to develop a comprehensive inventory, rating and prediction (IRP) system for retaining wall assets management in Tennessee. The state-of-art Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based thermal sensing technology will be used as an auxiliary tool during field inspection. The system will integrate the advantages of existing systems, but develop a more objective rating procedure, providing additional dynamic forecasts on service life, risk analysis and action cost. All these extra components enable the established IRP to be more beneficial for efficient planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and managing of retaining wall systems in the state of Tennessee.
