Development of Risk-Based Decision Methodology for Facility Design

This research study will develop a Colorado-specific methodology for risk analysis of facilities designed and built by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), accounting for hazards and incorporating life-cycle assessment considerations. The study will conduct a full risk-based analysis of design standards for mast arms and develop draft design guidelines for a risk-based assessment based on this analysis. Other facilities of interest will be chosen in coordination with CDOT engineers, who will provide the requisite design details to the investigators. A consequent-consistent risk approach to facility design will result in more effective utilization of construction and maintenance funds.
