This program is suitable for design professionals, and is typically open by invitation only.
Life-cycle cost analysis variables are presented first and how each are treated in an analysis. A comparison among asphalt, concrete and ICP demonstrates how ICP can have a lower life-cycle cost, especially under heavier traffic loads. Since construction and maintenance costs vary widely over a pavement’s life, the presentation briefly explains how to account for this with probabilistic approaches to life-cycle cost analysis, and compares it to a deterministic approach where all future costs are fixed. This presentation includes an introduction to the ICPI Methodology Report on life-cycle analysis and becoming and the ICPI life-cycle cost analysis software.
