Economic Sustainability of Concrete Pavements

Economic evaluation of transport infrastructure is as important as its technical and structural design; often only initial construction costs are calculated to evaluate economic project sustainability. Forgetting maintenance costs exposes society to unacceptable risks of expensive decisions. Road pavements design and construction solutions affect maintenance works during service life, which not only entail economical and financial expenditures but also damage service regularity for users. Distress pavement analysis can contribute to finding the financially most advantageous solution. This paper shows a computer program defined to analyze structural, functional and financial characteristics of concrete pavements.
