REMAINING LIFE ANALYSIS OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS

The paper reports on a study to predict and compare the remaining life (damage) of several flexible highway pavement sections in the state of Maryland by two major, but differing, design philosphies currently used in practice. These two design philosophies related to the performance or functionally based failure approach of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials design analysis, and the rational or fundamentally based distress oriented design procedures using elastic layered principles in conjunction with dynamic moduli evaluation of component layer materials. The study conducted and reported in this paper is centered solely upon methodologies related to the structural cracking mode of distress.
