Development of Mechanistic-Empirical Flexible Pavement Design in Iran

M. Ameri and A. Khavandi

Recent advances in flexible pavement design have prompted agencies to move toward the development and use of Mechanistic-Empirical (M-E) design procedures. Mechanistic-Empirical (M-E) design combine the elements of mechanical modeling and performance observation in determining the required pavement thickness for a set of design condition. In this study, a Mechanistic-Empirical (M-E) design procedures and algorithm based on KENLAYER software with regard to Iran climatic and traffic conditions is developed. This study also explores present relationships and diagrams based on effective variable on pavement design to facilitate design process.
