Idaho AASHTOWare Pavement ME Design User’s Guide, Version 1.1

This User’s Guide provides the information necessary for Idaho pavement design engineers and consultants to begin to use the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) AASHTOWare Pavement Mechanistic-Empirical (ME) Design software for new and rehabilitated pavement design. This is a stand-alone guide, but it draws from other Idaho pavement materials/construction manuals as needed, as well as research reports from the University of Idaho for traffic, hot mix asphalt (HMA), unbound materials, and various other inputs. This manual is divided into 12 chapters and 4 appendices of examples, and it covers topics including traffic characterization, materials characterization, flexible pavement design, rigid pavement design, rehabilitation with asphalt concrete or portland cement concrete (PCC), sensitivity of inputs, and design examples.
