STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT, PART III: ANALYSIS OF PERFORMANCE STUDY DATA

Analysis of the performance data accumulated for in service pavement sections in Nebraska has been accomplished. Elements such as traffic, pavement thickness and strength, pavement loss in servicebility, triaxial strength test results for subgrade soils and spring loss in bearing capacity of pavements have been resolved to terms analogous to those used for the AASHO Road Test. The AASHO terms used are Structural Number, PSI, Soil Support Value, Regional Factor, and Equivalent 18 Kip Axle Loads. These elements were evaluated and design equations developed for Nebraska conditions. /FHWA/
