ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS OF QUALITY CONTROL FOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION

THIS PAPER DESCRIBES THE ESSENTIAL FEATURES OF A COMPREHENSIVE SCHEME FOR THE RATIONAL APPLICATION OF QUALITY CONTROL IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION. METHODS ARE DEVELOPED TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM VALUES FROM ECONOMIC CONSIDERATION OF THE SAMPLE SIZE, AND THE PERCENTAGE DEFECT ASSOCIATED WITH THE ACCEPTANCE LIMIT. THE RELATION BETWEEN GAIN AND THE DEGREE OF COMPLIANCE IS STUDIED AND THE RESULTS ARE OF INTEREST TO BOTH THE CONTRACTOR AND THE CLIENT. THE AVAILABILITY OF THE REQUIRED COST DATA IS ALSO DISCUSSED. /AUTHOR/ TRRL/
