APPLICATION OF FWD-MEASUREMENTS AT THE NETWORK LEVEL

This paper describes the development of two indicators for the assessment of the structural adequacy and the structural condition of roads at the network level. The basis for the development are the current Dutch design procedure for flexible pavements and data from SHRP-NL test sections. For both indicators a minimum of input parameters is required, which facilitates their use at the network level of pavement management. The outcome of three verification studies shows that results from the indicators correlate very well with the results from detailed project level studies. Further, the verification studies indicate that the input parameters for the indicators can indeed be gathered in network level monitoring of pavements.
