ER-235 Calibration Factors for PMA Using M-E Based Designed Methods
Calibration Factors for Polymer-Modified Asphalts Using M-E Based Design Methods
As a follow-up to AI's ER-215, this Engineering Report presents calibration factors for rutting, fatigue cracking, and transverse cracking specific to polymer-modified asphalt (PMA) mixtures for use with the new NCHRP Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG). These calibration factors are necessary to use with the MEPDG to accurately predict the performance and distresses of PMA mixtures. 32 pages. ISBN 978-1-934154-55-7.
