This booklet presents information to calibrate the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement layout consultant (MEPDG) software program to neighborhood stipulations, regulations, and fabrics. It presents the street neighborhood with a state-of-the-practice device for the layout of latest and rehabilitated pavement buildings, in response to mechanistic-empirical (M-E) rules. The layout technique calculates pavement responses (stresses, lines, and deflections) and makes use of these responses to compute incremental harm over the years. The method empirically relates the cumulative harm to saw pavement distresses.
