TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 590: Multi-Objective Optimization for Bridge Management Systems examines the development of methodologies for network- and project-level optimization of multiple, user-specified bridge management performance criteria. The report also explores the development of bridge management software modules to implement the methodologies. The report includes software modules, a user’s manual, and demonstration database as part of an accompanying CD-ROM, which is available for download as an ISO image.

Links to the download site for the combined appendices and data-viewing ISO and to instructions on burning an .ISO CD-ROM are below.
