REVIEW OF THE CURRENT SITUATION ON ROAD DESIGN OPTIMISATION IN GERMANY

A program is described the basis (mathematical model) for which is stochastic, simulates to some extent the process of design, and allows an optimization according to aiming functions being defined optionally without simplifications. Thus all aspects of the design technique are incorporated and the desired minima are developed simultaneously and in parallel. Parallel to the development of this procedure, is the development of a dynamic programming approach with splines for the optimization and sensitivity analysis of roads. Details are given of the programming and a practical design example is presented. The use is described of interactive computer displays and programs for road design.
