State of Practice for Managing ERS Assets

The project scope was to study the current state of practice for the asset management of Earth Retaining Structures (ERS), research options for the Inventory and the Condition and Performance Assessment of ERS.

The scope also included researching data requirements to support effective ERS asset management practices, and the development of a preliminary guide to the Asset Management of Earth Retaining Structures (ERS).

Thanks to the valuable information gathered during the State of Practice Survey, and document research, we were able to develop a preliminary guide to asset management of ERS. The guide was delivered to the AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways in November 2009.
