  1. 1. Improved road design for future maintenance analysis of road barrier repair costs

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Hawzheen Karim; KTH.; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik; highway maintenance; highway management; highway design; road planning; road design; highway engineering; road barrier; cable barrier; w-beam barrier; road barrier damages; barrier repair cost.; Vägprojektering för minskade drift- och underhållskostnader; Keywords: highway maintenance; barrier repair cost;

    Abstract : The cost of a road construction over its service life is a function of the design, quality of construction, maintenance strategies and maintenance operations. Unfortunately, designers often neglect a very important aspect which is the possibility to perform future maintenance activities. READ MORE

  2. 2. The use of highway crossings to maintain landscape connectivity for moose and roe deer

    University dissertation from Fakulteten för samhälls- och livsvetenskaper

    Author : Mattias Olsson; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Biology; Biologi; wildlife crossings; Barrier effect; habitat selection; ecoduct; moose; roe deer; connectivity; conservation; overpass; underpass; highway; exclusion fencing;

    Abstract : Increasingly wildlife managers and land managers are challenged to maintain the viability and connectivity among large mammal populations. Thus, it is important that effective highway crossings are identified and optimized with respect to construction cost, facilitation of ungulate movements, and ability to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions.

  5. 5. Knowledge-Based Systems for Preliminary Design of Structures

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Per Löfqvist; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1994]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; Civil engineering and architecture;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns methods for the application of knowledge-based techniques to preliminary structural design. A practical study of these methods is done by developing a prototype for preliminary design of highway bridges (called PREBRI). READ MORE
