A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR PREDICTING VEHICLE OPERATING COST

THIS PAPER DISCUSSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW APPROACH TO THE PREDICTION OF THE HIGHWAY USER COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH DIFFERENT HIGHWAY ALIGNMENTS. THIS APPROACH IS BUILT AROUND A DIGITAL COMPUTER PROGRAM WHICH SIMULATES THE PHYSICAL OPERATION OF A SAMPLE VEHICLE OR VEHICLES. ALTHOUGH INTENDED TO PRODUCE THE SAME SORT OF INFORMATION AS THE AASHO ROAD USER BENEFIT ANALYSIS MANUAL, THIS NEW TECHNIQUE WILL PERMIT A FAR MORE DETAILED ANALYSIS OF ALTERNATIVES IN HIGHWAY DESIGN. /AUTHOR/
