Abstract: Life cycle cost analysis can help engineers make decisions about materials and design that in turn will affect the operating and maintenance costs of infrastructure over the long term. This data-driven approach could also help save hundreds of millions of dollars, which would help close the gap between the funds required and the funds available.
