Beta Testing of the Calibration Tool is Underway

September 03, 2019

As mentioned in the previous newsletter, many agencies are requesting more detailed support to assist in the local calibration of the Pavement ME Design transfer functions for predicting distress and performance. Beta testing of the tool started in early August.

Thank you to those who have volunteered to be beta testers for the AASHTOWare calibration tool! Wouter Brink and Chad Becker of ARA are leading the beta testing. The first meeting of the beta testers was held in early August. Periodic meetings are planned around every other week. It is expected that the calibration tool will still be released as planned near the end of September.

If you and/or your agency has any questions about the calibration tool, please contact Wouter Brink (Phone: 217-356-4500; wbrink@ara.com) or the ARA Help Desk (Phone: 217-356-4500; pavementmedesign@ara.com).
