RIGID PAVEMENT DESIGN SYSTEM INPUT GUIDE FOR COMPUTER PROGRAM RPS2

The report supplies the instructions necessary for the use of computer program RPS2. This program is one of a continuing set of programs of the Rigid Pavement Design System developed by Research Project 123. The program uses over 100 input variables to generate a set of rigid pavement design strategies. The program optimizes these strategies on a cost per square yard basis and outputs the most economical strategies in order of increasing cost up to a total of 23 available designs. The report provides a complete input guide for the program, a sample input and output, and a discussion of common errors which occur in the program's use.
