The Concrete Sustainability Hub at MIT (CSHub@MIT) will present two additional webinars in its continuing series. Bot webinars are free of charge and open to the public; however, advance registration is required for both.
The next webinar is, “Building Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA), with Hazard Resistance.” Scheduled for Thursday, May 25 at 11 a.m. (EDT), the webinar, is free or charge and open to the public.
This webinar presents a building LCCA approach developed by CSHub researchers that combines initial construction costs with several types of operational costs, including costs associated with energy consumption and repairs due to damage from hazards. Life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) enables engineers, designers, and decision makers to better understand the economic impacts of infrastructure decisions over time, and to identify opportunities that exist to reduce impacts.

The second new webinar will cover, “Pavement Vehicle Interaction (PVI): Design and Maintenance.” The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, June 29, 11 a.m. (EDT). Pavement vehicle interaction (PVI) considers the interaction between a vehicle’s tires and the roadway surface on which it is driving. PVI leads to excess fuel consumption and, as a result, smog and greenhouse gas emissions, and impacts drivers, states, and municipalities financially. This webinar will present CSHub research which has led to models that quantify excess fuel consumption due to PVI for pavement segments and pavement networks.
