Evaluation and Calibration of a New Capacity Model

The objectives of this study are to evaluate and calibrate a new design model that has been developed for analyzing the bearing capacity of flexible pavements that were constructed on soil subgrades. The major intent of the study is to validate and implement the new model. Computer software containing the programmed equations of the model has already been developed. Instructions and training will be provided as appropriate.
