Pavement Design in the Post-AASHO Road Test Era

This paper outlines the application of the AASHO Road Test results and its impact on pavement design in the United States. The efforts under way to develop mechanistic–empirical (M-E) design procedures to replace the AASHO Road Test based procedure are also explained. In addition, the difficulties encountered in the development and implementation of M-E procedures and recommended future actions to insure the success of M-E design are provided.
