SYSTEMS APPROACH TO PAVEMENT DESIGN: IMPLEMENTATION PHASE

The appendices included in this report are for the use of persons directly involved in the operation of a computer program (SAMPG). This program provides a basis for selecting flexible pavement design and management strategies with the lowest predicted total costs over a prescribed analysis period when considering such cost elements as initial construction, routine maintenance, periodic rehabilitation, interest on investment, salvage value, and roadway user costs. This program has been pilot tested in three states and found to be implementable where suitable computer facilities and personnel are available.
