This report focuses on the finite element idealization as related to principles of pavement analysis, while other techniques and topics are introduced to provide a complete picture. The topics presented are organized to illustrate the similarities and consequences of using various prediction techniques. These topics include: the theoretical basis of the principal techniques, material models, comparison of analytical and measured results, and the selection of a prediction technique. (Author)
