Quantitative sustainability assessment of pavement-vehicle interaction : from bench-top experiments to integrated road network analysis
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
The sustainable development of our nation's roadway system requires quantitative means to link infrastructure performance to lifecycle energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Beside surface texture and roughness-induced ...
Model based pavement-vehicle interaction simulation for life cycle assessment of pavements
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
Responsible for about a third of the annual energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the U.S. transportation Network needs to attain a higher level of sustainability. This is particularly true for the roadway ...
