LTPP Computed Parameter: Moisture Content

Since the final round of LTPP TDR measurements was complete in October 2004, approximately 175,000 more automated TDR measurements have been added to the database that have not been interpreted. Some of this data was collected using on-site instrumentation that resulted in more frequent TDR measurements, including burst measurements following significant rainfall events. This effort will complete the interpretation of TDR measurements performed by LTPP and provide estimates of moisture contents from these measurements in the LTPP Pavement Performance Database.
