Local Calibration and Strategic Plan for Implementation of AASHTO Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG)

The objectives of this project are to: (1) review current activities relating to local calibration procedures of the NCHRP Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG); (2) select in-services pavement sections to correlate predicted performance with actual performance to adjust MEPDG prediction models; (3) develop appropriate calibration factors for each predicted distress; and (4) develop a detailed implementation plan for integration of the new design guide into Kentucky's design process.
