Abstract

Problems that face the highway engineer in the domain of rigid highway pavements construction are almost complex and effected by different factors. Diagnosing of these problems and suggestion of suitable solutions require significant amount of engineering knowledge, which is almost difficult to be confined at all sites of construction. Therefore, construction problems in rigid highway pavements represent an excellent domain for development of a system that contains a knowledge base covers descriptions, causes, and solutions of these problems. In this paper, the knowledge isacquired from written sources in the form of textbooks, papers, journals, manuals, electronic files, and any other written references. This knowledge is documented, analysed, and represented in a form of dilated flowchart that can be used as a suitable tool to understand the problems and find the solutions. The flowchart, then, is converted to a computer program by coding the knowledge using VISUAL BASIC programming language. The developed program named KBS-CCPRP represents a knowledge base system to control construction problems in rigid highway pavements.
