Objectives

To develop guidelines on how to obtain useful information from road profiles. Of particular interest are relationships between longitudinal pavement profile and ride quality, pavement performance, dynamic loads, highway safety, and vehicle and cargo wear. The secondary research objective is to assist state profiler ussers in resolving unexplained sensitivities of profile measurements to speed, resolutions, sampling interval, road properties, and other factors.

Subjects: Maintenance Pavement Design, Management, and Performance
