Abstract : The report provides a description of nondestructive pavement evaluation which involves testing a pavement with an impact loading device that measures pavement deflection, conducting a surface condition survey, and coring the pavement to verify pavement layer thickness. The data are used to determine the vehicle operations that will cause failure of the pavement sections evaluated, predict expected performance, and help determine maintenance and repair alternatives. The description, applicability, benefits, limitations, costs, recommended uses, and location of demonstrations for the nondestructive pavement evaluation technology are discussed....
