(103) The correction factors Xs include the influences of span, annual traffic volume, service life, multiple lanes, traffic type and surface roughness and may be calculated by

where:

> Xs 1 value for span

Xs2 value for annual traffic volume

Xs 3 value for service life

X.s>4 value for multiple lanes
