Optimization and Stochastic Evaluation of Road Preservation Plans

Research output: Book/ReportReportResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Abstract. Roads deteriorate in several distinct ways, each of which can be quantified by external observation and testing. Different types of damage worsen at different rates, and these rates also vary stochastically for each damage type. Treatment methods are available which address different types of damage, but the costs of these treatments vary considerably. Our goal is to determine the most cost-effective treatment plan required for a given section of road, which must also maintain the road in good condition with reasonable certainty.
