Distribution Plan for the Recommended Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Guide and Software

<br />National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 1-37A, the largest in the over 40-year history of the program, was recently concluded with the successful delivery of a recommended mechanistic-empirical pavement design guide to NCHRP by the research team of ERES Consultants, its subcontractors Arizona State University and Fugro Consultants LP, and numerous individual consultants. The initial distribution of this pavement design guide and its companion software will be made in mid-2004 when a fully functional version for testing and evaluation will be available to all interested users in the public and private sectors of the United States and worldwide, in the form of a CD-ROM distributed to NCHRP sponsors and a download from the Internet for the wider public. The objectives of this project are to <font face="Times New Roman" size="4">(</font>1) produce a copy-protected CD-ROM version of the guide and software for distribution to NCHRP's sponsors and the Federal Highway Administration; (2) produce a copy-protected version of the guide that is read-only from the Internet; (3) produce an executable version of the design guide software that can be installed to a local drive and that requires authentication from a TRB server to run; and (4) provide technical support for the distribution and installation of the 1-37A deliverables. <br /><br />
