Pavement Performance Models

<p>The Delaware Department of  Transportation (DelDOT) collects Pavement Condition data from all the pavements in their network, and uses this data to develop Annual Paving Programs that address the roads requiring work for each year. This condition data, collected over several years, could be analyzed to predict future condition, predict when maintenance should be applied, and predict the end of a pavement's useful life. Combined with data from initial construction quality records and maintenance activity records, one could develop performance prediction models for similar pavements in the DelDOT network. With these models, DelDOT could better anticipate future needs of each pavement, and could better target the appropriate rehabilitation techniques to pavements at the opportune time. </p>
