Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Benefits Study

Project Information

Project ID:
FHWA-PROJ-07-0047
Project Abstract:

The research objectives of this study include: (1) Investigating the benefits derived from the LTPP Program to traffic characterization and prediction. (2) Studying the improvement in materials characterization originated from the LTPP Program. (3) Determining the environmental effects on pavement design and performance prediction contributed by the LTPP data. (4) Evaluating the benefits of LTPP data in pavement management. (5) Investigating the benefits of using the LTPP data in the evaluation of existing design methods and in the development of new pavement response and performance models applicable to pavement design and performance prediction. (6) Studying the effects of LTPP data on the development of maintenance and rehabilitation strategies. (7) Determining the influences of the LTPP data on the evaluation of specific design features on pavement performance. (8) Investigating future benefits that can be cultivated from the LTPP Program.
