Freight Axle Mass Limits Investigation Tool (FAMLIT) user guide

This is a user guide to the decision tool for the calculation of the marginal cost of road pavement wear across the Australian road network using the current Freight Axle Mass Limits Investigation Tool (FAMLIT) software and associated processes. The guide describes the data inputs, data outputs and performance models contained in the FAMLIT software. It is intended as a hands-on guide for using the software. FAMLIT is a Microsoft (MS) Excel-based pavement life-cycle costing analysis tool that takes road and traffic inputs and produces equivalent annual uniform cost (EAUC) outputs. These costs are based on the present value of the road agency maintenance and rehabilitation works costs over the life of each road segment. FAMLIT allows multiple loads to be modelled to produce load-wear-cost (LWC) curves that can be used to develop marginal road wear cost relationships.
