Research Report 259 Relationship between design and predicted performance of New Zealand pavements

Published: | Category: Activity management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

Both the design of new pavements in New Zealand and their rehabilitation treatments are currently performed in accordance with the Austroads Pavement Design Guide and its New Zealand Supplement.

New Zealand is also adopting pavement deterioration modelling based on the World Bank HDM models.

This report demonstrates how the modelling of roughness progression can supplement this pavement design.
