Download the Pavement Health Track Analysis Tool

Now available online is the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) new Pavement Health Track (PHT) Analysis Tool. The PHT Analysis Tool can be used to determine the health of your pavement network in terms of the pavement's remaining service life, based on rideability and pavement distresses (see August 2010 Focus at www.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/focus/10aug/01.cfm). Pavement health can be determined for different pavement types under various conditions such as climate or whether it is in a rural or urban environment. The tool was developed for FHWA by Battelle and Applied Research Associates. It uses pavement performance models that are simplified versions of the models and procedures used in the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide.

To download the software tool today, visit www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement/healthtrack/index.cfm. Also available are a User's Guide, Hands-On Workbook, and technical information about the software. The software, User's Guide, and other supporting documents will periodically be updated as FHWA makes enhancements to the tool. These updated versions will be posted online as they become available. For more information, contact Nastaran Saadatmand at FHWA, 202-366-1337 (email: nastaran.saadatmand@fhwa.dot.gov).
