THE OPTIMIZATION OF A ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECT BY APPLYING THE CRITICAL PATH METHOD TO A THREE-DIMENSIONAL GRAPH /IN FRENCH/

THE CHOICE OF AN OPTIMUM LOCATION FOR A ROAD CONSISTS IN MINIMIZING THE COST FUNCTION (CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATIONAL COSTS), AND TAKING INTO ACCOUNT VARIOUS GEOMETRICAL RESTRICTIONS (SLOPE, CURVATURE AND IMPOSED PATH). THIS PROBLEM IS SOLVED HERE BY DYNAMIC PROGRAMMING USING THE CRITICAL PATH METHOD ON A THREE-DIMENSIONAL GRAPH, THE STRUCTURE OF WHICH REPRESENTS THE GEOMETRICAL RESTRICTIONS. THE COST OF SOIL TRANSPORTATION IS NOT TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. /LCPC/RRL/A/
