Project Summary:The objectives of this study are to: 1.) Monitor the changes in the parameters affecting the material (e.g. termperature, moisture content, state of moisture) 2.) Estimate the material properties during various time periods by backcalculation of deflection data 3.) Compare the material properties from laboratory tests with those from field tests. 4.) Compare the backcalculated moduli with those obtained from the FHWA Integrated Model for climatic effects on pavement.
