  1. 1. Road Design for Future Maintenance : Life-cycle Cost Analyses for Road Barriers

    Författare :Hawzheen Karim; Björn Birgisson; Ulf Isacsson; Rolf Magnusson; Robert Thomson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; road maintenance; road management; road planning; road design; life-cycle cost; road barrier; guardrails; cable barrier; road traffic injuries; barrier collisions and barrier repair costs.; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; barrier collisions and barrier repair costs; Vägprojektering för minskade drift- och underhållskostnader;

    Sammanfattning : The cost of a road construction over its service life is a function of design, quality of construction as well as maintenance strategies and operations. An optimal life-cycle cost for a road requires evaluations of the above mentioned components. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Efficient Winter Road Maintenance : A Study of Technical and Contractual Issues

    Författare :Adel Abdi; Hans Lind; Björn Birgisson; Lars Silver; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; climate; road climate and weather; road surface roughness; road friction; winter tyre; winter maintenance tools; RWIS; weather station; winter maintenance; contract type; road maintenance contract; winter maintenance contract; partnering; strategic alliance; public procurement; tender; incentives; bundling services; payment mechanism; remuneration models; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Since ancient times, roads have tied people and cultures together. Roads have been createdwith the aim of facilitating trade and cultural exchange among different regions in the world. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Improved road design for future maintenance : analysis of road barrier repair costs

    Författare :Hawzheen Karim; Ulf Isacsson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; highway maintenance; highway management; highway design; road planning; road design; highway engineering; road barrier; cable barrier; w-beam barrier; road barrier damages; barrier repair cost.; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik; Keywords: highway maintenance; barrier repair cost; Vägprojektering för minskade drift- och underhållskostnader;

    Sammanfattning : The cost of a road construction over its service life is a function of the design, quality of construction, maintenance strategies and maintenance operations. Unfortunately, designers often neglect a very important aspect which is the possibility to perform future maintenance activities. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Life Cycle Costing in Road Planning and Management : A Case Study on Collision-free Roads

    Författare :Jonas Wennström; Håkan Sundquist; Tommy Edeskär; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; collision-free road; design; infrastructure; investment; life cycle costing; life cycle cost analysis; maintenance; management; operation; planning; road; sustainability;

    Sammanfattning : Construction of infrastructure does not only mean large capital investments but also future costs to operate and maintain these assets. Decision making in planning and design of roads will impact the need of future operation and maintenance activities. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Measurements for winter road maintenance

    Författare :Mats Riehm; Per-Erik Jansson; Eros Pasero; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; winter road maintenance; sensors; infrared thermometry; energy efficiency; road salt;

    Sammanfattning : Winter road maintenance activities are crucial for maintaining the accessibility and traffic safety of the road network at northerly latitudes during winter. Common winter road maintenance activities include snow ploughing and the use of anti-icing agents (e.g. road salt, NaCl). LÄS MER
