LIFE2 USER'S MANUAL

This report describes a digital computer program that enables pavement designers and planners to analyze the consequences of available pavement design alternatives. The program includes analytical procedures for designing rigid and flexible pavements for airfields, roads, and streets. In addition, this program is capable of evaluating maintenance and repair strategies. The resulting combinations of design schemes and maintenance strategies are ranked by total cost over the design life of the pavement. The manual presents background information about the program's analytical methodology and provides detailed instructions for its operation and input preparation.
