Assessment of Structural Capacity Indicators from Rolling Wheel Deflectometer Data Collection in Louisiana

The objective of this follow-up project is twofold. First, this project will evaluate the aforementioned structural capacity indicators in predicting pavement structural deficiency based on Rolling Wheel Deflectometer (RWD) measurements. Based on this evaluation, the research team will introduce modifications to improve prediction of pavement structural deficiency. Second, this project will develop a methodology to integrate the most promising structural capacity indicators into the Louisiana Pavement Management System (PMS) via the recently-developed TCBA software developed in Louisiana Transportation Research Center (LTRC) Project 10-4P. In addition, this project will assess the cost-efficiency of RWD testing in identifying and repairing structurally-deficient sections prior to reaching very poor conditions.
