This paper presents the Danish CBA-DK software model for assessment of transport infrastructure projects. The as-sessment model is based on both a deterministic calcula-tion following the cost-benefit analysis (CBA) methodol-ogy in a Danish manual from the Ministry of Transport and on a stochastic calculation, where risk analysis (RA) is car-ried out using Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS). After a de-scription of the deterministic and stochastic calculations emphasis is paid to the RA part of CBA-DK with consid-erations about which probability distributions to make use of. Furthermore, a comprehensive assessment of the set of distributions are made. Finally conclusions and a perspec-tive are presented.
