SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS OF TRUCK WEIGHT ON PAVEMENT DETERIORATION

This report was intended to investigate the effect of truck weights on pavement deterioration. The major tool in this effort was a computer program developed by Austin Research Engineers, Inc. (ARE). Program "NULOAD" was to perform the analysis of effects of legal load limit changes on pavement performance. A test network of highways impacted by energy development was to serve as the initial model. However, inconsistencies of the program exeuction with the sample data provided by ARE prompted termination of the study. (FHWA)
