FOURTH NATIONAL WORKSHOP ON BRIDGE RESEARCH IN PROGRESS:
 
RESEARCH ABSTRACT
 
Title:
Life Cycle Cost Analysis for Bridges
Author(s) and Affiliation(s):
Hugh Hawk National Engineering Technology Corporation North York, Ontario, Canada
Principal Investigator:
Hugh Hawk
Sponsor(s):
National Cooperative Highway Research Program
Research Start Date:
April 15, 1996
Expected Completion Date:
July 15, 1998
Research Objectives:
Transportation officials consider life-cycle cost analysis an important technique for assisting with investment decisions. The objective of this research is to develop a methodology for bridge life-cycle cost analysis (BLCCA) for use by transportation agencies. This methodology will be augmented by practical tools, including a guide manual for carrying out BLCCA and a software package (with appropriate documentation) that automates the methodology.
Expected Products or Deliverables:
Guide Manual for Bridge Life Cycle Cost Analysis (BLCCA), BLCCA software package, and BLCCA User's Manual
