Pavement condition is determined by measuring distress in the pavement and assigning a numerical rating to indicate the general condition. Surveying processes and calculation methods are standardized for road pavements. The result of the analysis is a numerical value between 0 and 100, with 100 representing the best possible condition and 0 representing the worst possible condition.
