ABSTRACTIn order to find the optimal intervention program for municipal infrastructure networks (e.g. road, gas or water distribution), a combined methodology is necessary to take into consideration the costs of interventions in terms of owner costs, but also potential losses of service before, during and after the execution of the interventions, and the costs due to the loss of service when interventions are being executed. It is also necessary to take into consideration: 1) intervention cost r...

There are a large number of efforts around the world to obtain more net benefits from road infrastructure assets. This can be seen through the proliferation of codes and guidelines and the increasing amount of research in road infrastructure asset management. Many of these codes and guidelines and much of the research, however, are focused on only part of the large complex problem of road infrastructure asset management. In efforts to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the process, howe...
