Long-Term Pavement Performance Program Determination of In-Place Elastic Layer Modulus: Backcalculation Methodology and Procedures

Appendix B: LTPP Test Sections with a Moderate and High Percentage of Errors

This appendix lists the LTPP test sections with a moderate and high percentage of errors from the backcalculation process. Table 19 includes the sections with a moderate percentage of error terms of the total number of deflection basins, while table 20 includes the sections with a high percentage of error terms. The deflection basins classified as errors for the test sections included in these tables represent only 9.6 percent of the total number of deflection basins.
