  3. Kevin L. Rens, PhD, PE • Iowa State University • BSCE, MSCE (structures), PhD (structures) • Infrastructure • Inspection, Rating, Maintenance, Rehabilitation • Civil Engineering Materials Science • Sustainability & Environmental Engineering • University of Colorado Denver • Assistant Professor (1995-2000) • Associate Professor (2000-2006) • Professor (2006-2009) • Professor and Chair (2009-?)

  4. A little bit about: Colorado & Denver

  5. Colorado

  6. Colorado Population (2008) = 5,000,000

  7. 54 peaks over 14,000 ft (4,200 m) elevation

  8. Denver CCD Population = 600,000 Denver Metro Population = 2,500,000

  9. Area = 155 square miles (400 sq km)

  10. University of Colorado System • 3 Campus System • Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs • 52,000 Students • 4,200 Full time faculty • $2,000,000,000 (2 Billion Dollar Budget) • $651,000,000 ($651 Million Dollars Externally Funded Research Projects)

  11. University of Colorado Boulder

  12. University of Colorado Boulder • Flagship Original Campus • 1876 • Boulder Colorado (Population 90,000) • $280 Million Externally Funded Research • 29,000 Undergraduate and Graduate Students

  13. University of Colorado-Colorado Springs

  14. University of Colorado Colorado Springs • Primarily Undergraduate Institution • 1920 • Colorado Springs (Population 320,000) (Colorado Metro Population 650,000) • 7,500 Students

  15. University of Colorado Denver

  16. University of Colorado Denver • 2 Campus system located in Denver Colorado • Anshutz Medical Campus • Downtown Denver Campus • 1912 • $371 Million Externally Funded Research • 28,000 Students • Undergraduate and Graduate • Including all forms of Medical Doctorate

  17. University of Colorado DenverDowntown Denver Campus --College of Engineering • 38 Full-time Faculty (42 part-time lecturers) • 4 Departments • Civil (11 faculty), Mechanical (9), Electrical (9), Computer Science (9) • Annual External Research Funding • $1,500,000 to $2,000,000 (Almost all in CE) • College of Engineering Enrollment • 328 Graduate, 484 Undergraduate, 240 pre-engineering • Student enrollment increasing last 3 years • Appx 200 degrees awarded per year equally split between graduate and undergraduate

  18. UCD College of EngineeringDepartment of Civil Engineering • Areas of Expertise • Structural , Transportation, Materials, Environmental, Sustainability, Geotechnical, Hydraulics, Geographic Information Systems • Appx Civil Engineering Enrollment • 22 PhD students in CE • 80 MS graduate students • 100 BS undergraduate students

  19. UCD-CCD Relationship • UCD (K. Rens) – CCD Relationship • Began February 1997 • Infrastructure Management • Bridges, Pavements, (Anything owned by “tax payers” • Many Undergraduate and Graduate Students • BS, MS, PhD • Began with $50,000 grant • Now $200,000 - $ 400,000 Annual Budget

  21. CCD Project Scope: Why It Began • City Employee • 2 hours to 2 weeks to find Information

  22. Disorganized Filing - Bldg A

  23. Organized Filing -- Bldg B

  24. Organized Filing -- Bldg C

  25. Deteriorating Files All buildings

  26. Geographic Information System (GIS) Not a new technology Maps+Objects+Data Information Disseminator/Records manager Infrastructure layers Arial Photography Bridge Alley Street Street subsystem

  27. Image Numbering Instructions

  28. Documents collected, organized and sorted by report type and assigned unique ID • ID label placed on each document • Documents delivered to scanner

  29. Bridge Photographs • Digital camera used to photograph bridges; elevation and longitudinal shots • Photos displayed on one-page report

  30. Select Structure from Map

  31. Scope: How it Evolves • Bridge failures • Bridge management • Assessment/Inventory/Management Major • Provide public w/ state and local government • financial position (infrastructure assets) • Standard reporting approach • Depreciation • Modified reporting approach • Inventory, Assessment, Maintenance Minor

  32. Scope: Where it is Going • Prevent Deteriorating Records (GIS) • Inspect Street Subsystems, Alleys, Streets • Prevent Deteriorating Bridges • Using NDE to • augment internal • visual inspections
