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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Intstitute of Technology

    Author : Hawzheen Karim; KTH.; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; 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.; Vägprojektering för minskade drift- och underhållskostnader; barrier collisions and barrier repair costs;

    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
