Calibration of the MEPDG Performance Models for Flexible Pavements in Idaho

The main objective of this research research project is to develop local calibration (adjustment) factors for the Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) predictive models for flexible pavement design in Idaho. The local calibration factors will be incorporated into the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO)Ware Pavement ME Design software currently being implemented at the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD).
