University of South Alabama Department of Civil, Coastal, and Environmental Engineering CE490/590 Pavement Design Term Project Term project contains two parts: Part I: a PPT presentation of your work plan (Exam I, 15% of final grade) Part II: final report (20% of final grade) Select either Track One or Track Two. (If you are not sure which to select, check with me.) Track One: Use LTPP data source and relevant analysis tool to discuss the relationship between pavement design parameters and long-term pavement performance: LTTP data source contains 2000 test sites across US. You will need to sort out the data from the website:, and then use statistical analysis tool or other tools to conduct analysis work. Track One is based on “T&DI and FHWA 2018-19 LTPP International Data Analysis Contest”, click the link for more information: Details about the contest can be found: ering/Content_Pieces/2018-2019-asce-ltpp-contest-guidelines.pdf Examples (not limited to): • Relationship between in-place density and top-down fatigue cracking • Relationship between subgrade soil and transverse cracking • Does asphalt pavement with higher thickness have better field performance? • Long-term field performance of warm mix asphalt pavements Note: If you select this topic, you can work with me to select a topic and submit a paper to participate this contest. First-place winner will receive all-expense paid trip to attend TRB Annual Meeting at Washington D.C. and cash prize. Track Two: Use appropriate pavement software and design guide to discuss the relationship between pavement design parameters and pavement performance. Examples (not limited to): • Effect of modulus and Poisson’s ratio on fatigue life of pavement • Effect of subgrade thickness on rutting performance • Effect of climate zones on fatigue cracking of asphalt pavement Part I: Presentation (PPT Due: 5 pm Wed Feb 27; Online presentation:6 pm Thu Feb 28) Presentation serves as a proposal of your selected topic. Prepare a 5-min PPT (less than 10 slides) that should contain: • Topic title, name, affiliation • Introduction • Objective • Work Plan • Expected Outcome 1 Evaluation on your presentation will be based on complexity and feasibility of your topic, and clarity of your presentation. After your presentation, you will receive comments and direction for your next step on conducting analysis. The evaluation will be conducted by Dr. Wu and one student. Presentation evaluation rubric is attached (Appendix A). Part II: Final report (Due: April 20) Your final report should contain at least: • Cover letter, including title, name, affiliation, submission date • Table of content • Abstract (maximum 250 words), Keywords (maximum 5 words) • Introduction (literature review can be inserted here) • Objective • Work Plan • Results and Discussion • Conclusions • References • Appendix Final Report Requirement: • No page limit • Analysis to be in-depth, clear, and logic • Word-file only • Citation and reference should follow ASCE journal requirement • Font: Times New Roman, 12, single spacing, page number Evaluation on your final report will be subject to peer reviewing process by Dr. Wu and one student. Final report evaluation rubric is attached (Appendix B). 2 Appendix A: CE490/590 Pavement Design Online Presentation Evaluation Rubric The online presentation is different from traditional in-person presentation, therefore, the evaluation will focus on your PPT design, complexity and feasibility of your topic, and clarity of your presentation.

Explanation & Answer





Asphalt pavement is a common structural component in highway pavements.

Performance of asphalt pavement relies subgrade condition, material
specifications, and mix design, traffic volume and load, and environmental

There is limited research on the impact of geometric properties e.g. asphalt
pavement thickness on its performance.

This research intends to investigate the effect of asphalt pavement thickness on its

The research will be based on long term performance of asphalt pavement.

Main Objective

To investigate the effect of asphalt pavement thickness on pavement

Specific Objectives

To investigate the effect of asphalt pavement thickness on the deflection

To investigate the effect of asphalt pavement thickness on fatigue cracking

To investigate the effect of asphalt pavement thickness on longitudinal cracking

To investigate the effect of asphalt pavement thickness on faulting

To investigate the effect of asphalt pavement thickness on the longitudinal profile

To investigate the effect of asphalt pavement thickness on the transverse profile

Work Plan
Data Collection (Data mining)

The data will be obtained from a database linked to the users through a website link

Data sorting

The environmental conditions will be the only consideration while sorting out the data, that is, climate.

For the other factors, that is, the materials and mix design, environmental conditions, sub-base and
subgrade conditions, traffic volume and load, and workmanship they will be assumed to be constant.

This assumption will be based on a reason that the asphalt pavements were designed as per the required
standards to meet the conditions of the respective places and therefore, their effect on this investigation
will be constant.

The project will conduct a check assuming that the environmental conditions were also considered in
the design process.

If the assumption-reason will hold, the two constants obtained from the analyses with the
environmental conditions factored and not factored will almost be equal.

Work Plan Cont.
Data analysis and Presentation

This will the last part of the work plan.

Two methods will be used to analyze the sorted data, that is, correlation and
regression analysis.

The trendline of the ...
