Evaluations and Applications of Mechanistic Performance Prediction Modeling Tools

Methodologies and processes for use by transportation integrator organizations will be developed for designating key corridors and general use routes that serve trade, work commuting and tourism statewide. Emphasis is placed on coordinating responsibilities between partners customers and stakeholders. The expectations of system performance in each corridor and on general use routes will be differentiated by customer need, intensity of usage, time of travel and other performance criteria. The study takes advantage of recent research developments in pavement performance and whole-life cost modeling so as to afford the use of these modeling tools in addressing high profile problem areas. The study will insure that a given model is thoroughly validated prior to implementation. For instance, included with these objectives is the evaluation of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) 1-37A pavement response models.
