Decision Support in Selecting Airfield Pavement Design Alternatives Using Life Cycle Assessment: Case Study of Nashville Airport
TLDR
The case study showed that performing LCA provides opportunities for airports to consider energy use and environment-related impacts in the decision-making process.
Quantifying greenhouse gas emission of asphalt pavement preservation at construction and use stages using life-cycle assessment

Life Cycle Assessment of Pavements: A Critical Review of Existing Literature and Research
TLDR
This report provides a critical review of existing literature and modeling tools related to life-cycle assessment (LCA) applied to pavements and identifies five key issues: inconsistent functional units, improper system boundaries, imbalanced data for asphalt and cement, use of limited inventory and impact assessment categories, and poor overall utility.
