An integrated pavement design processor has been developed as a strategic approach to the design and management of construction and rehabilitation of pavements. The modulator processor is a comprehensive decision framework with a capacity to drive different optimization routines at the user's command through interactive queries between the computer and the design engineer. The multi-option arrangements enable the design engineer to consider both rigid and flexible pavement systems simultaneously. The processor can be used for new pavement construction or existing pavement rehabilitation. In addition, three options for flexible pavement design are included to describe the structural subsystem desired: One based on AASHO structural number, another based on Dynaflect deflection, and the third based on linear elastic theory.
