SYSTEMS APPROACH TO LIFE-CYCLE DESIGN OF PAVEMENTS. VOLUME III. LIFE2 PROGRAM LISTING

This report is the third volume of a three-volume report which documents an automated system (LIFE2) for analyzing pavement designs and maintenance and repair strategies based on life-cycle costs. LIFE2 models existing Corps of Engineers criteria for designing rigid and flexible pavements for airfields, roads, and streets. The program includes analytical procedures for evaluating earthwork, drainage, and frost protection requirements in addition to maintenance costs. The resulting combinations of design schemes and maintenance strategies are ranked by total cost over the design life of the pavement.
