outlined in Table 1.1. for emphasis, and the rater should be aware of these problems before
starting the condition survey.
1.6. Inspection Procedure. Each sample unit chosen should be individually inspected. The
actual inspection is performed by walking over each slab of the sample unit being surveyed and
recording distress existing in the slab on the jointed rigid pavement survey data sheet
(Figure 1.3.). This figure should be enlarged and copied for actual use. One data sheet is used for
each sample unit. A sketch is made of the sample unit, using the dots as joint intersections. The
appropriate number code and severity for each distress should be placed in the square
representing the slab. Sample units are chosen for inspection in accordance with guidance in
TM 5-826-6/AFR 93-5.
