Life-Cycle Cost Analysis in Pavement Design - Interim Technical Bulletin

General Interest: provides practical guidance to engineers responsible for the day-to-day design, construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, and management of pavements.

Primary Topic: Pavement Issues

Description: Document recommends procedures for conducting life-cycle cost analysis of pavements. Provides guidance on input parameters for agency costs, and discusses the impact of variability in the input parameters. Provides guidance on the computation of user costs resulting from delay and vehicle operating costs. Introduces the use simulation concepts such as Monte Carlo simulation to in corporate variability associated with LCCA inputs.
