Texas Flexible Pavements and Overlays: Calibration Plans for M-E Models and Related Software
The primary goal of this five-year project is to collect and develop a data storage system of materials and pavement performance data on a minimum of 100 highway test sections around Texas. For easy management and access, the user friendly MS Access is being used as the data storage medium for the collected data. As a minimum, the data collected will serve to calibrate and validate the mechanistic-empirical (M-E) design models and serve as an ongoing reference source and/or diagnostic tool for Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) engineers and other transportation professionals. Toward these objectives and as documented in this interim report, the specific objective of this task was to develop strategic work plans for calibrating and validating the M-E models and the associated software.
