Indicators representative of the condition of geotechnical structures for road asset management

The management of geotechnical assets of road infrastructure is a subject that is rarely investigated. The variability and the difficulty to predict long-term performances pose a challenge for planning maintenance.

The report provides an overview of the state of practice. After a description of the architecture of management systems, it provides relevant performance indicators to evaluate the condition of geotechnical assets.

Examples of implementation, the results of an international survey, a detailed analysis of the existing documents on the subject and recommendations complement the report.
