Dynamic Optimization Algorithm for Vertical Alignment of Highways
AbstractIn all design criteria, earthwork optimization is essential for the determination of optimal vertical alignment of a highway project. Actually, there can be numerous grade line alternatives for given ground elevations; thus, the objective is to find out the optimal vertical alignment causing the minimum cost considering several design constraints. Basically, this is a constrained nonlinear optimization problem, which can be solved by a multistage optimization technique. This article introduces a methodology for the vertical alignment optimization of a highway using dynamic programming approach. Results indicated that the introduced algorithm can be used successfully in the optimization of vertical highway alignment.
