A review of all existing design and construction methods is presented with the aim of selecting, developing, and applying a simple, practical, and uniform method of design. The objectives of the system were: to obviate the use of untried methods; to ensure adequate performance; to eliminate variation occasioned by cost differentials of local and competitive materials; to avoid reductions of pavement thickness or quality in order to balance cost; and to establish procedures for further development of design methods through tests, investigations, and study of actual pavement behavior.
