COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF DEFLECTION AND WAVE PROPAGATION NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING METHODS FOR PAVEMENTS: IMPLICATIONS FOR IMPLEMENTATION AT STATE AND LOCAL LEVELS
The objective of this project is to develop a Non Destructive Testing (NDT)-based framework to effectively manage urban pavements at the project level. This framework incorporates the conditions of the underground utilities, the type of pavement, the existing patches, and the future patching in the decision making process. The proposed framework is deemed to be cost effective, simply because it is based on selecting the alternative associated with the lowest life-cycle cost, among all other potential alternatives.
