TPAD Data Analysis Software and User Manual

The Total Pavement Acceptance Device (TPAD) is a continuous pavement deflection testing device enhanced with several additional survey features. Since the device is designed for total acceptance of pavements, it combines deflection testing with Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), digital video and Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies. The final system will be suitable for testing both new pavements in a quality assurance capacity and those scheduled for rehabilitation to determine suitable strategies. This user’s manual describes the data processing system and uses the data collected on a 2012 survey of U.S. 287 in the Wichita Falls District for illustrative purposes. The executable load module for this software and the associated data from U.S. 287 are supplied with this manual.
