About the research

Implementation of geotechnical asset management (GAM) offers a significant opportunity to improve the general geotechnical practice through the development of design and management approaches that require consideration of the tradeoffs between least risk and life-cycle costs. The product from this work must be an adaptable implementation manual with the necessary template tools for an agency to recognize the benefits of GAM.

The InTrans researchers are subject matter experts on this projects.
