Mechanistic-Empirical (M-E) Design Implementation & Monitoring for Flexible Pavements: 2018 PROJECT SUMMARY

Mechanistic-empirical (M-E)–based flexible pavement design concepts and procedures were previously developed in Illinois Cooperative Highway Research Program projects IHR-510, IHR-524, ICT- R28, and ICT-R27-060; and have been implemented by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). IDOT continues to support a variety of M-E flexible pavement analyses as well as design, implementation, and monitoring activities. The objective of Project ICT-R27-149-1 was for University of Illinois staff to continue to provide technical support and cooperate with IDOT in these activities. The cost savings (and probably reduced user delay time) from such designs will benefit IDOT, local roads agencies, and the travelling public.
