Next to Peak
Next to Low
Number of Hours in the Year
Rise Plus Fall = (R1+R2+R3+F1+F2) / Length(meters/km)
Horizontal Curvature = (C1+C2+C3+C4) / Length(degrees/km)
Each section is evaluated individually and can have any number of alternatives. HDM-4 produces a NPV for each section alternative that is used to find the optimal alternative per section.
Analyses road sections together as a package by considering project alternatives as the unit for performing economic analysis. HDM-4 produces a NPV for each project alternative.
Analysis involving new sections and diverted traffic can only be performed using the Analysis by Project method.
