Design Pamphlet for the Determination of Layered Elastic Moduli in Support of the 1993 AASHTO Guide for the Design of Pavement Structures
Primary Topic: Flexible Pavement
Description: Details recommended procedures to determine the design resilient modulus of different pavement materials. These suggested procedures consider the seasonal variation of resilient modulus to estimate the structural layer coefficients for use in flexible pavement design. The design pamphlet also includes recommended C values for adjusting backcalculated linear elastic moduli to laboratory-measured resilient moduli at comparable stress states and/or temperatures.
