A four-stage procedure for effective management and maintenance scheduling for infrastructural facilities is presented. The structure/component needing immediate attention is identified during the first stage. The second stage investigations reveal local or global damage and also the location of damage, based on the principles of damage assessment. Nondestructive testing and evaluation form the third stage. In the last stage, repair and remedial measures are carried out, which are followed by testing, if necessary. Out of the case study examples presented, two are specific to the third and fourth stage evaluation only, while one case study example is explained in full. © 2012 American Society of Civil Engineers.
