1996 PRODUCT PREVIEW: THE LONG-TERM PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE (LTPP) PROGRAM

The long-term pavement performance (LTPP) program is a 20-year study of inservice pavements across North America. Its goal is to develop improved pavement technologies for designing, building, and maintaining roads that will be more durable, longer lasting, and less costly. The program was established by the Strategic Highway Research Program and is now managed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The LTPP products are "things"--information, computer software, analysis procedures, testing procedures, design procedures, guidelines, and so forth--derived from the LTPP database or resulting from the research effort and delivered in a form that can be used by the States and Provinces to build better pavements. This booklet lists products of the LTPP program, which are grouped in four categories: Pavement Design Guides and Maintenance Strategies; Pavement Monitoring Procedures; Materials Testing; and Equipment Standards and Calibration Procedures. Each product listing includes the following information: Description of the product and its intended use; Target audience for the product; Applicability; and Source, if product is currently available, or expected date of availability, if product is still under development. Some products are already being used by certain States. These States are identified in the product listings as initial users. Within each product category are the name, telephone and fax numbers, and email address of the office to contact for more information on any of the products.
