PDF Version (0.7 mb)

Workshop for M-E Pavement Design Guide

  • Informative
  • Educational
  • Designed to assist FHWA's customers and partners in their implementation programs for M-E pavement design

In a continuing effort to support the evaluation and implementation of the new M-E Design Guide developed under NCHRP 1-37A, the FHWA Design Guide Implementation Team (DGIT) is pleased to offer the Climatic Considerations Workshops. These workshops are scheduled as shown below and are intended to help pavement design engineers and materials engineers better understand the enhanced integrated climatic model as it has been incorporated in the new design guide software. The intended audience for these workshops is State highway agency pavement design engineers, materials engineers, and engineering design consultants. FHWA field engineers and local agency engineers may also be interested in attending. For those unable to attend a workshop, the option to participate in the workshop is available through an online webcast open to all (September 19).
