T&DI and FHWA Announce the 2018-19 LTPP International Data Analysis Contest
Many highway agencies still need to gain a better understanding of which pavement data elements have the most impact on highway system performance. Students are invited to prepare a paper, using LTPP InfoPave™ and analysis, to provide highway managers with a clear understanding of how different data elements affect pavement performance over time. A review of the LTPP data should be performed along with a thorough literature review of performance measures and pavement management reports.
The 2018-2019 contest theme is Use the LTPP Data to Evaluate a Question or Concern for Your Region or State. Students may alternatively choose to address the challenge topic by submitting a paper on the Application of Data Science and Analytics to Address Transportation Infrastructure Issue(s) Using the LTPP Data (Pavement Performance, Traffic, Materials, Construction Quality). The challenge topic focuses on a more specialized component related to ongoing LTPP research with the potential to contribute to other pavement-related research areas.
Contest Guidelines are available on the
T&DI Contest page.
