Development of a Prediction Model for Pavement Temperature

This project aims to expedite the Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) testing and operations by eliminating the need to drill holes for measuring mid-depth pavement temperature a day before testing. The goal of the project is to develop procedures that can be used by ITD staff to predict the mid-depth pavement temperature using surface temperature readings and the high and low air temperatures the day before testing. It is expected that such procedure will speed up the FWD testing, reduce costs for traffic control, and improve safety by eliminating the need to measure temperatures in the roadway.
