AN INCREMENTAL COST STUDY OF HIGHWAY STRUCTURES IN OHIO

AN INTERIM REPORT IS PRESENTED OF A STUDY STILL IN PROGRESS. THE PRINCIPAL OBJECTIVE IS THE PRESENTATION OF THE PHILOSOPHY UNDERLYING, AND THE TECHNIQUES EMPLOYED IN THE CONDUCT OF, A STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE COST OF HIGHWAY STRUCTURES IN OHIO AND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VEHICLES WHICH THOSE STRUCTURES ARE DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE. BECAUSE THE STUDY IS AS YET INCOMPLETE, THE RESULTS INCLUDED MERELY EXEMPLIFY THE OBJECTIVES TOWARD WHICH THE WORK HAS BEEN DIRECTED. THIS IS ONE PHASE OF A LARGE-SCALE STUDY CURRENTLY BEING CONDUCTED BY PERSONNEL OF THE ENGINEERING EXPERIMENT STATION OF THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY IN AN EFFORT TO ESTABLISH THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TOTAL HIGHWAY COSTS IN OHIO AND VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS. THE RESULTS WILL BE PRESENTED IN A BULLETIN. THE CONCEPT OF MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN COST AND VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS, WHICH HAS BEEN APPLIED BY PROF. ROBERT F. BAKER TO AN INCREMENTAL COST STUDY OF HIGHWAY PAVEMENTS, HAS BEEN INCORPORATED AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE UNDERLYING PHILOSOPHY, MAKING IT SOMEWHAT UNIQUE AMONG INCREMENTAL COST STUDIES RELATING TO HIGHWAY STRUCTURES. /AUTHOR/
