Useful life

Culvert, screen and outfall manual, (CIRIA C786) published by CIRIA in 2019, defines useful life as either:

  1. 'The period over which a depreciable asset is expected to be used.
  2. The number of production or similar units (ie intervals, cycles) expected to be obtained from the asset.'
