Seasonal Variations of In Situ Materials Properties in New York State. Final Report

Along with a technical working group consisting of representatives from the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Cornell University Local Roads Program conducted research on the seasonal variation of in situ materials properties in New York State. That research is the subject of this report. The results of the research will enable NYSDOT to expedite the use of the new American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Guide for the Design of Pavement Structures. The research provides NYSDOT with seasonal models to analyze pavements using mechanistic-empirical methods for some of the most critical subgrade soils and locations in New York State. For locations not included in this research, a framework and methodology for developing statewide seasonal models is provided.
