Enhanced Analysis of Falling Weight Deflectometer Data for Use with the Mechanistic-Empirical Flexible Pavement Design and Analysis and Recommendations for Improvements to Falling Weight Deflectometer

This project will investigate the ideal loading and response information needed from Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) testing to reliably evaluate in-service pavements for use in mechanistic-empirical pavement design and analysis, and recommend enhancements to the current FWD technology and analysis to meet those needs.
