The simulation program was written to describe a concrete highway paving operation using mobile central-mix plant and slip form paver, in combination with different truck haul fleet sizes and truck speeds. The trucks queue at the plant, load, travel to the slip form paver, queue, unload, and then complete the cycle by returning to the plant. Because the distance, plant to paver, first decreases and then increases as the paving strip moves toward the plant, passes in front, then moves away in…
