Abstract: Iowa Department of Transportation expressed an interest in commissioning Infratek Solutions Inc. to provide its next-generation bridge deck assessment and analysis services (insight) to Iowa’s selected bridge inventory. To meet this objective, Iowa has initiated a research study with the goal of exploring and refining how advanced NDE assessment technologies may be deployed to best serve asset management goals. For this reason, Infratek Solutions Inc. deployed its High Speed and High Definition bridge deck evaluation systems, conducted automated data collection and processing on all the bridges, and analyzed the data to identify deterioration mechanisms, repair quantities, and intervention recommendations. All data, final results, and actionable insights were made accessible to Iowa DOT through Infratek’s online asset management portal, where multiple statistics, data analysis, and manipulation tools are available for users. The results were also packaged in comprehensive PDF reports that can be easily downloaded from the portal.
