SERVICES: Evaluation of pavement condition indicators

CUSTOMER: ADR Engineering S.p.A

YEAR: 2008 - 2009

On behalf of ADR Engineering, SINA carried out a campaign of high-performance surveys aimed at analyzing surface deterioration and evaluating the functional and structural characteristics of the pavements of the aircraft infrastructure at Rome Fiumicino Airport.

The survey was performed with several high-performance instruments including: the Heavy Weight Deflectometer (HWD), Automatic Road Analyzer (ARAN), Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), and Laser Road Imaging System (LRIS). The data processing made it possible to determine a series of indicators for every asset: the PCN (Pavement Classification Number) bearing capacity index, the IRI (International Roughness Index), which represents the international reference standard to define lengthwise regularity, the rutting index (RUT) for crosswise regularity and, finally, the PCI (Pavement Condition Index) to define the state of surface deterioration.

Finally, the assignment included the computerization of the data and the supply of software for the visualization of the geo-referenced digital images related to the pavement surface.
