RES2020-13: MEPDG Climate Data Input for the State of TN

The objectives of the proposed research are to do the following: (1) To select candidate sites and collect relevant data for NARR and MERRA analyses. (2) To use NARR and MERRA climate data sources to predict pavement performance on selected sites with different pavement structures, materials and traffic levels. (3) To analyze, compare and contrast performance (distresses) predicted by using NARR and MERRA climate data sources. (4) To establish Level 1 climate data source for design of Tennessee pavements (5) Develop procedure or framework for selecting climate data source (NARR or MERRA).
