OPTIMUM OVERLAY MAINTENANCE STRATEGIES FOR ASPHALT PAVEMENTS DEFINED USING A PAVEMENT MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

A pavement maintenance management system (PMMS) has been developed which defines and evaluates optimum overlay maintenance strategies for inservice asphalt concrete pavements. All aspects of the PMMS have been incorporated into a computer program. The purpose of the PMMS is to examine available maintenance alternatives in terms of when and what type of overlay maintenance should be applied such that optimum utilization of available funds can be achieved. In addition, the PMMS assists in the long range planning for maintenance needs and the associated budgeting. The main emphasis of this paper is to present the results obtained using the PMMS. To provide some basis for evaluation, however, the essential concepts used in the development of the PMMS are briefly summarized.
