An Open Assessment Tool for Performance Based Standards of Long Combination Vehicles
Report, 2017

The project “Performance Based Standards for High Capacity Transports in Sweden” (Performance Based Standards for High Capacity Transports in Sweden, 2013-2017) have generated a first version of an open PBS assessment tool, OpenPBS. The tool uses models and computations to calculate Performance Based Standards (PBS) measures for combination vehicles. The tool targets Long Combination Vehicles (LCVs, typically 25-35 m) but it can also calculate PBSes for shorter combinations and solo units. This report describes the tool. The report explains the concepts selected for the tool. Future developments are proposed.
