Strategic Objective 5: Development of pavement response and performance models applicable to pavement design and performance prediction


The following boxes are Analysis Outcomes for Objective 5. To see specific analysis projects for each Outcome, click on the corresponding box.

Blue Box: A. Guidelines for selection of appropriate load-response models for use in pavement design as a function of the acceptable level of risk, and model complexity. VH1 (Very high priority, number 1 in sequence).

Blue Box: B. Mechanistic-empirical procedures for using commonly collected pavement data to predict specific distresses. VH1 (Very high priority, number 1 in sequence).

Blue Box: C. Calibrated relationships (transfer functions) between pavement response and individual distress types. VH1 (Very high priority, number 1 in sequence).



Critical = color-coded red box for critical priority
Very High = color-coded blue box for very high priority
High = color-coded green box for high priority
Sequence = number-coded boxes 1, 2, or 3 in sequence


Note: Sequence numbers denote the order in which Analysis Outcomes should be addressed for a given Objective. Analysis Outcomes with the same sequence number can be addressed at the same time.
