Abstract: This proceedings, Infrastructure Planning and Management, consists of papers presented at two parallel conferences held in Denver, Colorado, June 21-23, 1993. Part I covers a wide range of issues, research, and applications in the area of infrastructure management. Some of these are: 1) Automated assessment of conditions; 2) implementation of management systems; 3) improvement of infrastructures; 4) application of neural networks and geographic information systems; and 5) modeling of deterioration. The second part of the proceedings explores the issue of uncertainty in infrastructure planning. It covers such topics as: 1) Private sector investment; 2) fuzzy set theory; 3) land usage/transportation modeling; 4) digital imaging; 5) real-time traffic control; and 6) life-cycle benefit analysis. Both sections present case studies relevant to the issues discussed. This collection of papers provides engineers, planners, and technicians with a current comprehensive look at available and emerging technologies within the general area of infrastructure planning and management.
