Software from ACPA (American Concrete Pavement Association), development to design pavements according AASHTO and PCA especifications, both asphalt and concrete including. To able of calculate ESAL number from daily traffic distribution
The Contractor should be aware that this is a performance-related specification in which the Contractor is responsible for compacting the pavement within a specified density range. In order to successfully compact the pavement to the specified density range, the Contractor must be prepared to select, operate, and control the paving and compaction equipment, to monitor the results, and to make necessary adjustments (without direction from the Engineer) to achieve the desired results. Written instructions for determining pavement density and core locations are available from the Regional Materials Engineer or the Director, Materials Bureau.
