Validating an Endurance Limit for HMA Pavements: Laboratory Experiment and Algorithm Development
Arizona State University
The project final report is available as NCHRP Report 762.
The objectives of this research were to (1) carry out a laboratory experiment to identify the mixture and pavement layer design features related to an endurance limit for bottom-initiated fatigue cracking of HMA and (2) develop an algorithm to incorporate this endurance limit into the MEPDG and other selected pavement design methods.
STATUS: The project is complete. The project final report is available as NCHRP Report 762.
