Abstract:

This report is the third volume of a three-volume report which documents an automated system LIFE2 for analyzing pavement designs and maintenance and repair strategies based on life-cycle costs. LIFE2 models existing Corps of Engineers criteria for designing rigid and flexible pavements for airfields, roads, and streets. The program includes analytical procedures for evaluating earthwork, drainage, and frost protection requirements in addition to maintenance costs. The resulting combinations of design schemes and maintenance strategies are ranked by total cost over the design life of the pavement. Volume I is the LIFE2 Users Manual, Volume II is the LIFE2 System Documentation, and Volume III is the LIFE2 Program Listing. Author
