The last few decades have seen an amazing boost in the number of existing civil-engineering structures as well as in the resistance that is required of them. Among these are larger bridges for heavier trucks, longer tunnels for accommodating more traffic, safer pipelines for transporting different...
A linear referencing solution (LRS) brings many benefits to an organization, often becoming the foundation of its transportation asset management processes. An LRS must provide the ability to manage and report against the assets located on the linear network. Departments of transportation need to...

This whitepaper looks at bridges and what makes them corrode. It also discusses how employing relatively low-cost corrosion control measures during initial construction can produce low-maintenance bridges with service lives of 75 to 100 years. Corrosion control protects initial bridge investment...
Twenty-five years ago the goal for a winter road maintenance fleet manager was straightforward—keep highways safe for travelers and do not worry too much about the amount of salt applied to roadway surfaces. Automating key snow and ice control systems was not on any fleet manager’s short list of...
Just as with people, tires on heavy equipment perform better at their optimal or designed shape. Optimal tire shape is maintained by proper tire inflation pressure. Underinflation may shorten tire life, compromise handling and be a safety hazard. Overinflation is also problematic—inflating a tire...

The risk of fire and explosion is a serious concern for personnel working in industrial facilities such as petroleum refineries and chemical processing plants. These facilities deal with the reality of day-to-day operation while in direct exposure to volatile materials. The threat of a catastrophic...
Overall, from 2003 to 2011, locally available conventional cold mix was used with an average annual pothole count of 17,635 ranging from 14,369 to 24,061 potholes. From 2012 to 2013 UPM Permanent Pavement Repair Material was used. The average annual potholes count was reduced to 7,002, ranging...
Virtually all municipal roadway milling and resurfacing projects have to address the presence of multiple manholes. After milling and before paving, manholes are often left raised about 2 in. above the milled surface. During this time, while drivers use the roadway mid-project, the sharp raised...
Do you and your team know what to do if a piece of equipment is struck by lightning or comes in contact with an electric transmission line? Quick and proper action could save serious injury or even loss of life. Since mine sites are often at high altitudes and have no trees, mining equipment is...
In a previous white paper, BKT Tires Inc. discussed the hidden dangers of tires on heavy equipment if the machine is struck by lightning or comes in contact with electric transmission lines. It is also important to know what to do to protect your personal safety.
