Calibration Refinement of AASHTO PaveME Pavement Design Software

Existing calibration factors were developed based on earlier versions of AASHTO’s PaveME software. Recently, AASHTO released tools which allow for streamlined local calibration of the software’s most recent version. This project will refine local calibration of PaveME software based on pavement design and management information collected from Kentucky projects. The updated software can be used to refine the existing web-based design tool and develop more efficient designs that better utilize funding resources. The updated software may also be used to provide more efficient specialized designs for rehabilitation projects and new projects which fall outside the web-based design tool’s scope.
