Predicting Your Pavement’s Future

An important part of roadway management is the assessment of pavement performance. Many transportation agencies in the United States are improving the conditions of their roads through next-generation models and measures of pavement performance. Software programs such as Pavement ME Design can use data from an agency’s pavement management system to calibrate models for local conditions. Calibrations analyze data to estimate the damage accumulation over the service life of a pavement, therefore allowing transportation agencies to improve predictions of pavement performance. Pavement performance models improve pavement management by helping agencies to assess the deterioration of a pavement overtime and predict future performance. Next-generation models and measures will help advance pavement management and improve the road network.
