FUNDAMENTAL FACTORS IN INCREMENTAL COST STUDIES OF PAVEMENTS

INCREMENTAL COST STUDIES OF HIGHWAYS HAVE BEEN IN PROGRESS AT OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY FOR APPROXIMATELY TWO YEARS. CERTAIN FACTORS RELATED TO PAVEMENT DESIGN PREVENT AN "ABSOLUTE" ANSWER TO INCREMENTAL COST STUDIES. THESE INFLUENCES ARE DISCUSSED, AND MENTION IS MADE OF THE TYPE OF RESEARCH NEEDED TO IMPROVE THE ACCURACY OF CURRENT INCREMENTAL ESTIMATES. AN ATTEMPT TO EXTEND THE WORK, PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED FOR OHIO CONDITIONS, TO A MORE GENERAL APPLICATION IS REPORTED. A FORMULA FOR GENERAL APPLICATION IS DISCUSSED, ALONG WITH THE ASSUMPTIONS AND THE QUALIFICATIONS REQUIRED TO APPLY IT. /AUTHOR/
