PRELIMINARY STUDIES OF THE ACTUAL SERVICE LIVES OF PAVEMENTS

THE ACTUAL SERVICE LIVES REALIZED FROM PAVEMENTS IN THE CITIES OF BUFFALO, NEW YORK, AND DES MOINES IN WAYNE COUNTY, MICHIGAN, AND IN THE STATE HIGHWAY SYSTEMS OF MASSACHUSETTS AND RHODE ISLAND ARE REPORTED. THE DETERMINATION OF AVERAGE LIVES WERE MADE BY STATISTICAL METHODS APPLIED TO THE RECORDS OF CONSTRUCTION AND RETIREMENT OF PAVEMENT FOR DIFFERENT YEARS. THE STATISTICAL METHODS ARE BRIEFLY EXPLAINED AND SOME DISCUSSION IS GIVEN OF THE FORCES THAT CAUSE RETIREMENT. NO CONCLUSIONS ARE REACHED AS TO GENERAL PROBABLY AVERAGE LIVES FOR VARIOUS PAVEMENT TYPES AS THESE LIMITED STUDIES DO NOT WARRANT THEM, BUT ADDITIONAL STUDIES NOW IN PROGRESS SHOULD AFFORD A PROPER BASIS FOR CONCLUSIONS. MENTION IS MADE OF THE NEED OF RELIABLE SALVAGE VALUES AND MAINTENANCE COSTS AS IMPORTANT FACTORS IN HE TOTAL ANNUAL COST OF A GIVEN PAVEMENT TYPE. /AUTHOR/
