Paper presented at the 30th Annual Southern African Transport Conference 11-14 July 2011 "Africa on the Move", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
Road departments employ a variety of pavement preservation treatments to maintain and preserve their network of paved highways. In this paper a model was developed to relate asphalt treatment life in terms of Treatment Performance Capacity (TPC), pavement condition, traffic level and location temperatures for all asphalt based treatments. This model is able to provide estimates of the performance of treatments, in several climatic zones, several pavement condition levels and traffic magnitudes. Using the TPC values for each treatment and the price of each treatment, the cost effectiveness for all treatments was developed. This paper also presents several examples that validate the concepts behind the model.
