Integration of Materials Science-based Performance Models into PMS
Book part (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
The integration of materials science-based performance models obtained from laboratory performance testing and modeling into the lifecycle assessment of road pavements is a futureoriented approach for the improvement of performance prediction. This will significantly improve the selection processes for maintenance strategies within pavement management as well as during the design of new pavements. Maintenance options can be selected based on material behavior and improved prognosis of long-term performance of the pavement structure. Within the ERA-NET ROAD II project InteMat4PMS - "Integration of Material-Science-Based Performance Models into Life Cycle Analysis Processed in the Frame of Pavement Management Systems" - this approach was developed and tested in practice on two test sections in Germany. The output of this project is presented in this chapter.
