This catalog provides a highly informative and practical guide on the details of the design practice for asphalt and concrete pavements in the U.S. The catalog first provides information in the form of a large "Synoptic Tables of State Pavement Design Features." Second, the catalog provides, for each state highway agency (SHA), a "State Factorial Design Matrix of Pavement Design Features" that gives design layer thicknesses for a wide range of traffic, subgrade, and climatic site conditions for major types of main highway pavement constructed by the SHA. Third, the catalog provides a "Catalog of Key Design Features by Climatic Region and Pavement Type." These results are presented graphically in the form of a catalog of designs. Fourth, a summary of key design features for flexible and rigid pavement is given. This information will be of interest to highway administrators, pavement designers, contractors, industry, and others involved in various aspects of pavement design and construction. The results will also be utilized to determine the feasibility of developing catalogs for pavement design in the United States.
