Flexible Pavement Design – State of the Practice

This look at flexible pavement design includes two sections: pavement design methods and pavement design state-of-the-practice. Design methods examined include empirical pavement design, mechanistic-empirical (ME) pavement design, Mechanistic‐Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) and AASHTOWare Pavement ME Design, and Perpetual pavement design. State-of-the-practice includes geographical distribution of empirical design use and an overview of ME design implementation in Indiana, Missouri, and Oregon.
