Four pavement deflection analysis methods, in the form of personal computer software programs, were evaluated and compared from the practitioner's perspective on the basis of calculated overlay design thickness, common characteristics, and performance. These programs are ELSDEF, MODCOMP2, MODULUS4, and ISSEM4. Each program applies the concept of backcalculation, which is the determination of in situ material properties of a pavement structure from its response to dynamic surface loading. A… CONTINUE READING
