This paper investigated the effect of pavement type on fuel consumption. Significant differences in fuel consumption and emissions rates were observed on rigid versus flexible pavement surfaces. The difference in rates could result in substantial differences in the total energy consumption and carbon footprints during the design life of roadway facilities and should be considered in life cycle cost analyses of alternative designs. Fuel consumption measurements were made on multiple runs by… CONTINUE READING
