A more efficient and strategic approach is needed for managing transportation assets, in general, and, in particular, their foundational elements during their service life. This need is exacerbated by uncertainties in the impact of changes to the aging transportation infrastructure assets caused by continued degradation, climate change, unreliable funding, effects of international trade, and possible changes in national policies and priorities—all in the context of almost no information on the condition and service capability of the foundation elements.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 1041: Nondestructive Evaluation of Highway System Asset Foundational Condition and Capability provides a critical review of current and leading practices, research, and applications of emerging and new nondestructive technologies, and identifies the potential for further advancements to near-term opportunities for improving agencies’ capabilities to assess and monitor the foundational integrity, condition, and service capability of highway system assets.
