Prediction of pavement roughness
Barker, Walter R.
Miscellaneous PaperAbstract: A simplified procedure has been developed for considering roughness in pavement design. The procedure utilizes statistical parameters to generate stochastic pavement material properties and profiles. A methodology was developed for predicting the rutting of a pavement section due to applied traffic. Thus the predicted rut depth can be applied to the profiles yielding a predicted surface profile. This profile can then be used to determine a measure of pavement roughness.
