MODIFICATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RIGID PAVEMENT DESIGN SYSTEM

A revised rigid pavement system computer program, RPS-3, is presented and documented. Details of model changes are explained. The most significant changes were made in the traffic delay cost subroutine, TDS. The program's modularization is outlined and each new subroutine is flow charted and explained. A discussion of RPS-3 implementation is also included, to serve as a guideline for the program's future use. The report also contains a complete set of sample RPS-3 problems and a complete input guide as well as a discussion of the most common errors encountered in the use of RPS-3. This report is also intended to be a User's Manual for the RPS-3 program.
