Reminders and Tidbits

September 03, 2019

We want to remind you that there are many resources related to all aspects of Pavement ME Design. A significant amount of research has been conducted in relation to the software and we want to highlight some of these. The MEPDG Clearinghouse is a great resource to see what research has been done by state highway agencies for implementing the Pavement ME Design. Some topics include local calibration, input characterization, laboratory testing, traffic input collection and many, many, more. Please visit the ME Clearing house website to learn about the research that has been completed in recent years.
