Task 57, FY 1994, "Joint Task Force on Pavements' Workshop on SHRP LTPP Data and Analysis" (Mr. Kenneth H. McGee). The Joint Task Force on Pavements (JTFP) defined a need for a workshop to develop a vision for appropriate use of SHRP LTPP data and other research results toward the needs of the pavement engineering community. A facilitator was hired to assist the Joint Task Force in organizing the workshop and prepare a plan and comprehensive cost estimate of the workshop. The facilitator made all arrangements for the workshop, which was held March 3-5, 1993, in Syria, VA. Invitations were issued, and the workshop was attended by 90 pavement design engineers from the states, FHWA, and Canada. Four university faculty acted as recorders. The facilitator prepared oral and written reports of the workshop results. Funding for participant travel was allocated to ensure full participation. The draft final report was revised and distributed to participants and the states. Research needs have been identified and the JTFP Research Subcommittee held a two-day workshop January 7 and 8, 1994, to develop problem statements. A research agenda was developed and two problem statements were approved for funding by SCOR. Also a synthesis topic and a 20-7 topic were approved. A report documenting the entire process was submitted, and the JTFP will continue to use the results in the future to define further research needs. The JTFP held a meeting on November 2 and 3, 1994, to move forward with their research agenda. The project is complete.
