IC Benefit-Cost Analysis Paper

A research paper is published by Transportation Geotechnics demonstrates “use of IC reduces compaction costs by as much as 54 percent and results in a US$15,385 annual savings per 1.6 km throughout the roadway’s life.”  Get the paper to learn further details (Savan et al. (2016), Benefit-cost analysis and application of intelligent compaction for transportation, Transportation Geotechnics, Volume 9, Pages 57–68)!
