PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE AND PAVEMENT DISTRESS AS DETERMINANTS OF BASE COURSE STRUCTURAL EQUIVALENCIES. VOLUME 8
The report is the eighth of an eight-volume series which constitutes the Interim Report for PennDOT Research Project 71-7 entitled 'An Evaluation of Pennsylvania's Flexible Pavement Design Methodology.' This volume deals with the determination of structural layer equivalencies for the four stabilized base courses by the performance approach and the evaluation of the AASHO design method. A promising relationship which was found to exist between pavement thickness and pavement performance is also discussed.
