STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT PART I: SUMMARY OF PERFORMANCE STUDY DATA

This report includes the performance data accumulated since 1966 for a number of in service flexible pavements. It was concluded that the performance study results appear to confirm the concept that a pavement structure eventually deteriorates as it is subjected to the effects of cumulative traffic loads, and an evaluation of this deterioration can be obtained through PSI measurements. It was presupposed that the PSI can be utilized for development of a flexible pavement design for Nebraska. /FHWA/
