the ratios of pavement damage according to 1·hese equations to road user charges for different classes of vehicles in two states having among the lower and higher road user fee in the country. The method for computing ratio of pavement damage to user fees for these two states provides a fa. t and convenient means for all states to evaluate...
Pavement damage cost estimation: a synthesis of past research... user fees must reﬂect appropriately the share of pavement... Highway freight transportation continues to play an important role
For each truck pair, the ratio of the service life consumed from one pass of the overweight truck to the corresponding service life consumed due to the passage of a legal truck was determined. As a result, all ratios were greater than 1, indicating greater potential for accelerated pavement deterioration on routes due to overweight truck use.
geared towards the estimation of pavement damage cost PDC ; others went further to carry out highway cost allocation HCA. HCA is the assignment of speciﬁc fees to each user class of a highway...

Based on findings of this research, recommendations on the selection of transportation modes are provided and promising future research tasks are suggested as well. 17. Key Words 18.

This section includes the review of literature and of other tools for evaluating the effects of heavy vehicles on local roads and city streets. Through the review of the literature and knowledge of pavement design, analysis, and performance, it is clear that three parameters have the greatest effect on the pavement condition and longevity.
billion in Transportation 2050 revenue over the next 35 years will be allocated for roadway construction and maintenance, the majority of which will be used for new or resurfaced pavement on City streets. This is in addition to the Highway User Revenue Fund HURF revenue dedicated towards the construction and maintenance of the City's nearly 5,000
1. Introduction. This paper describes the design, development and on-road demonstration of a new system for allocating pavement damage between individual Heavy Goods Vehicles HGVs 1 for road user charging purposes. Ever since the publication of the Smeed Report in the mid-1960s Ministry of Transport, 1964, the possible implementation of direct forms of road-user charging has attracted...

Via Pedal Fort Collins, here's a simple chart showing the basic relationship between vehicle weight and the amount of "damage" or wear that is caused to the roadway. The relationship is pretty straightforward, but thanks to the magic of gasoline, people often forget to think about the weight disparities on our roads. Thus the chart, where weights and damage ratios are scaled against the

Over the pavement’s life cycle, frequent M&R interventions typically offset the WZ RUC savings gained from shorter construction time. Thus, the use of pre-cast pavement technology seemed to provide a balance with lower life cycle costs including road user costs, long-term pavement performance, and shorter construction time requirements.
Vermont Highway Cost Allocation Study. It covers the three items requested in your August work program: 1. A brief review and update of the recommendations we made on user taxes and fees and weight limits 2. A special analysis of the revenues and cost responsibility for permit vehicles in
with annualized benefit-cost ratios varying from 1.4 to 44.8 see box below. In other words, on an annualized basis each dollar spent on patching and overlays saves at least $1.4 in operating costs and can save as much as $44 depending on traffic volume. Though based on the roughness of road pavement, the analysis does not fully reflect pothole
user delays from closed runways and taxiways are ignored, as is the reduction in aircraft service life due to increased fatigue from operating on rough runways. Commercial service airports need an enhanced pavement management system EPMS incorporating full cost evaluation. An appropriate pavement management system should address the
