This study has produced three practical and useful products for the state highway agencies to address the pavement design dilemma: There is a large amount of knowledge about pavement design available that is not being used. These include a "Catalog of Current State Pavement Design Features," a "Catalog of Recommended Pavement Design Features," and a prototype Knowledge-Based Expert System (KBES). The development of the design feature recommendations through a unique consensus building process and the potential uses of each of these products by state highway agencies are summarized.
