  1. 1. Road Design for Future Maintenance : Life-cycle Cost Analyses for Road Barriers

    Author : Hawzheen Karim; Björn Birgisson; Ulf Isacsson; Rolf Magnusson; Robert Thomson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; road maintenance; road management; road planning; road design; life-cycle cost; road barrier; guardrails; cable barrier; road traffic injuries; barrier collisions and barrier repair costs.; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; barrier collisions and barrier repair costs; Vägprojektering för minskade drift- och underhållskostnader;

    Abstract : The cost of a road construction over its service life is a function of design, quality of construction as well as maintenance strategies and operations. An optimal life-cycle cost for a road requires evaluations of the above mentioned components. READ MORE

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