LCA Research Brief: Key Drivers of Uncertainty in Pavement LCA

November 1, 2012

This research presents a sensitivity analysis to quantify the level of contribution of different factors in the life cycle assessment of pavements under uncertainty. The results of this approach can be used to identify the elements to focus on to improve the characterization of pavement environmental impact. In addition, it can shed light on the areas that can change the outcomes of a comparative assessment and the associated decisions. MORE
