Calibration of the NCHRP 1-37A Design Guide (Pavement Analysis and Design System)

AASHTO will soon release its new Pavement Design Guide. The prediction equations in the new guide need to be calibrated to fit the states climates, materials, and traffic characteristics. This project will use WSPMS data to calibrate the prediction models. The benefits will be a calibrated pavement design process that not only produces rational pavement designs (namely layer thickness) but also predicted performance for the design period.
