Summary

An increasing number of agencies, academic institutes, and governmental and industrial bodies are embracing the principles of sustainability in managing their activities and conducting business. Pavement Life-Cycle Assessment contains contributions to the Pavement Life-Cycle Assessment Symposium 2017 (Champaign, IL, USA, 12-13 April 2017) and discusses the current status of as well as future developments for LCA implementation in project- and network-level applications. The papers cover a wide variety of topics:

- Recent developments for the regional inventory databases for materials, construction, and maintenance and rehabilitation life-cycle stages and critical challenges
- Review of methodological choices and impact on LCA results
- Use of LCA in decision making for project selection
- Implementation of case studies and lessons learned: agency perspectives
- Integration of LCA into pavement management systems (PMS)
- Project-level LCA implementation case studies
- Network-level LCA applications and critical challenges
- Use-phase rolling resistance models and field validation
- Uncertainty assessment in all life-cycle stages
- Role of PCR and EPDs in the implementation of LCA

Pavement Life-Cycle Assessment will be of interest to academics, professionals, and policymakers involved or interested in Highway and Airport Pavements.
