IMPLEMENTATION OF A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO PAVEMENT DESIGN (ABRIDGMENT)

A systems analysis model for pavements has been implemented in Florida, Kansas, and Louisiana. A computer program for the design of flexible pavements using the AASHO Interim Guide as a structural subsystem has been developed and can be implemented within any state. It incorporates most of the major variable involved in pavement design in a realistic way. Revisions required to accommodate the unique factors of each state can usually be made with a minimum of reprogramming effort. Collateral improvements such as construction cost simulation and pavement feedback data systems are required to provide reliable input data and, in the long run, to verify the assumptions made in design.
