2004 - WB - True Optimization of Pavement Maintenance Options Using What-If Models: An Application of Gradient Search Methods with HDM-4 This paper proposes the use of gradient search methods with what-if models to find the true optimums. It shows, with case studies, the feasibility of using the steepest descent method and the conjugate gradient method along with HDM-4 to find the true optimum maintenance options.

Chris and Lis

We are Lis Pedersen and Chris Bennett. We’ve been married over 30 years and each found our way to New Zealand in the early 1980s from Denmark and Canada respectively. Golden Bay has been our happy place for almost 20 years and we are now based in Pohara just above the beach, with our two cats Coco and Max.
