Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: Pavement research and development (R&D) in the military, government, and civilian sectors has never been more necessary nor more visible than it is now. As our nation's transportation infrastructure deteriorates to new lows, our airways become more congested in the need for new airports, aircraft developers propose new aircraft of unprecedented size and weight, paving materials become more scarce and expensive, our nations military forces become leaner and more dependent upon expedient or contingency pavements to fulfill strategic goals... all these reasons point to the urgent need to accelerate our R&D efforts, both in the military and civilian sectors. This tri-service research plan lays the road map for the military side of such an effort. It identifies in a systematic manner broad categories of pavement research, as well as specific areas within those categories, that are most crucial to meeting the needs of our users; shows the synergetic interrelationships between the specific areas of research; sets a timetable over the next eight years for conducting those research efforts; and specifies the funding levels necessary to accomplish those goals.
