Quantifying the Effects of Preservation Treatments on Pavement Performance

This research report presents a framework for quantifying the effects of preservation treatments on pavement performance together with a guide document to facilitate implementation of the framework. The proposed framework uses performance measures that quantify the changes in pavement performance in terms of condition (e.g., cracking and rutting of asphalt pavements and cracking and faulting of concrete pavements), service life, and life-cycle costs. Applicability of these measures was demonstrated using in-service pavement performance data. Also, alternate performance measures have been identified (e.g., friction and composite pavement condition indices); the guide describes a process for assessing their appropriateness for use in quantifying the effects of preservation treatments on pavement performance. In addition, incorporating these measures in asset management systems would provide a means for selecting the appropriate preservation treatments and optimizing the allocation of resources.
