Research Report 547 Fatigue design criteria for road bridges in New Zealand

Published: | Category: Activity management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

Road bridges are subjected to millions of cycles of heavy vehicle loading over their design lives, and the introduction of higher vehicle mass limits on New Zealand roads will significantly increase the rates of fatigue damage in bridge superstructures. The NZ Transport Agency's Bridge manual has relied on British and Australian standards for fatigue design criteria, and the aim of this project was to provide the basis for amended fatigue loadings based on New Zealand heavy vehicle characteristics, with allowances for forecast long-term growth in volumes and vehicle masses. The base fatigue loading was derived from analyses of effects on bridge spans of heavy vehicles recorded at weigh-in-motion sites between 2007 and 2011. The base fatigue loading was then adjusted for increases in legal vehicle masses permitted under a 2010 Land Transport Rule amendment (introducing HPMV – high productivity motor vehicles).

Supply chain survey findings report

Published: | Category: Statistics & surveys | Audience: General

The Procurement centre of excellence at Waka Kotahi conducted a survey of the infrastructure supply chain to identify potential challenges and constraints in recommencing our physical works programme and returning to full maintenance operations as NZ moved from COVID-19 Alert Level 4 back down to some form of business as usual.  

We also want to understand what resource challenges may occur in coming months, and whether access to resources could inhibit an accelerated or expanded delivery programme.    

The report presented here contains our initial findings with all commercially sensitive data removed.   We have conducted follow up with some respondents where we sought to better understand how Waka Kotahi can best support industry.

Research Report 617 Transition from visual condition rating of cracking, shoving and ravelling to automatic data collection

Published: | Category: Activity management , Research & reports | Audiences: General, Road traffic engineers & consultants

Robust condition data feeding into asset management processes is a key step towards having confidence in long-term strategies for renewals and replacements. The manual condition rating system was originally developed as an input into the treatment selection algorithm; however, in later years the data has been used for pavement deterioration modelling and trend monitoring, which are outside the intended scope of the rating system. It was therefore not unexpected that both field inspectors and researchers highlighted shortcomings in the quality and repeatability of manually recorded data. Automated scanning technologies promise to overcome many of the issues associated with manual condition data collection. However, before a wide-spread adoption of the scanning technology is possible, research had to prove the accuracy of the measurements and determine the impact of new data items in the asset management processes.
