Evaluation of Pavement ME Design Software for Flexible Pavements

This research will provide the first step for the implementation of ME Design for flexible pavements in Florida. As such, a full understanding of the implications of switching design methodologies is imperative. This requires a comparison of the two design methods: AASHTO 93 Method and ME Design Method. Additionally, a comparison of predicted versus observed distresses is necessary to understand the accuracy level of PMED, Version 2.6.
