Abstract: This report documents the results of a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers technology transfer initiative: the demonstration of nondestructive pavement evaluation technology to cooperating Federal and non-Federal partners. The Pavement Systems Division, Geotechnical Laboratory of the U.S. Army Engineer, Waterways Experiment Station led this effort. The objective of the project was to acquaint municipal public works agencies with a process where they could use a guide specification to acquire vendor services to perform nondestructive assessments of their pavement's structural adequacy. The guide specifications were employed to enable municipalities to contract for use of a Failing Weight Deflectometer (FWD) pavement evaluation system. The FWD system was used to assess pavement structural adequacy and determine pavement material properties for each of the localities. These data were then used to design cost effective pavement rehabilitation strategies for the participating communities.
