IMPORTANT: This module is intended to be a decision support tool and should not be solely relied upon for determining the inspection interval, i.e. a certain degree of engineering judgement should be applied while putting the model output into practice. It is advisable that the module is operated after the report 'Risk Based Inspection for Highway Structures', which explains, in detail, the adopted methodology and the intended use of the model, has been carefully read and understood.
Use RBI groups to build lists of structures which are to be inspected at the same interval. Define the group's Principle Inspection interval to keep certain structures together throughout the inspection programme.
To begin managing an inspection programme users first need to access the RBI Administration
page. From here users can click the Manage groups
To create a new group, first complete the Create New Group
section. Specify a Maintaining Area
, Group Name
and you can also add some Notes
. Click the Create New Group
to add the new group to the Structure Group
To edit the group itself, including adding structures to the group and setting the interval, click the Edit
link button at the end of the Structure Group
There are two sections on the Edit Groups
page. The Group Details
section allows you to update the Area
, but also specify the Group Interval
and the Group Interval Start Date
.Users will need to set the Group Interval and the Group Interval Start Date in order for the grouping effects to be seen on the inspection programme.The Structure List section allows you to build a list of structures that are to become members of the group. Click the Add Structures to Group button to begin.
