Abstract: Within the REMR program is a group of projects dedicated to the development of computerized maintenance management systems for coastal and waterway navigational structures. The general intent of these REMR Management Systems is to provide maintenance managers at all levels with tools to promote easier and more effective maintenance and budget planning. One objective of these REMR Management Systems is to create uniform procedures for assessing the condition of structures, and further to create assessment methods which will allow the condition of structures, and their parts, to be expressed numerically to take best advantage of the benefits available from the use of microcomputers in maintenance management. This “numerical language” for ex-pressing the condition of facilities is the Condition Index (CI). For coastal structures, the CI is determined from a Functional Index (FI) and a Structural Index (SI). The FI indicates how well a structure (or reach) is performing its intended functions, while the SI for a structure or structural component indicates its level of physical condition and structural integrity. This report describes a procedure for evaluating the condition and performance of coastal structures and for determining CI values.
