Long-Term Pavement Performance Data Analysis Student Contest

2019–2020 Guidelines

The Data Analysis Student Contest is a joint effort of the Federal Highway Administration’s Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program and the Task Committee on the LTPP Contest, a subcommittee of the Highway Pavement Committee of the Transportation & Development Institute (T&DI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The contest is designed to encourage university students, professors, and highway agency engineers to get involved in using the LTPP database, and thereby contribute to a better understanding of pavement performance.

The theme for the 2019–2020 LTPP Data Analysis Student Contest is: Use the LTPP Data to Evaluate a Question or Concern for a Region or State. This year’s contest also includes a challenge topic: Assess the Effect of Overweight Vehicles on Pavement Performance Using LTPP Traffic Data. The deadline for this year’s data analysis student contest has been extended to September 1, 2020. We encourage your participation, and look forward to receiving your submission. Winners will be recognized at the 100th Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, January 2021.

We look forward to your participation in this year’s contest. For more information, contact Deborah Walker at 202–493–3068 or deborah.walker@dot.gov.
