Title:Mechanistic-Empirical Design, Implementation, and Monitoring for Flexible Pavements: A Project Summary
Author(s):Thompson, Marshall R.; Al-Qadi, Imad L.
flexible pavement
mechanistic-empirical pavement design
Abstract:Mechanistic-empirical (M-E)–based flexible pavement design concepts and procedures were developed in previous Illinois Cooperative Highway Research Program projects (IHR-510, IHR-524, and ICT- R28) and have been implemented by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). IDOT continues to support a variety of M-E flexible pavement analysis, design, implementation, and monitoring activities. The objective of Project ICT-R27-060 was for University of Illinois staff to continue to provide technical support and cooperate with IDOT in these activities. The cost savings (and probably reduced user delay time) from such designs will benefit IDOT, local roads agencies, and the travelling public.
