Description: "The efforts of 0-6275 were primarily twofold. One aspect was geared towards extensive performance monitoring and material testing for better characterization of the experimental sections included as part of 0-5513 as well as new sections that were to be incorporated in the enhanced version of the TFPD. The other aspect of the study was to look into the calibration of the transfer functions in the newly developed MEPDG as well as Texas ME Design procedure being sponsored by TXDOT through the 0-5798 research study. It was understood that an effort to determine reliable bias correction factors would necessitate a large volume of project specific information for a number of pavement sections that are well spread out within the state such that differences in materials, traffic, construction practices and climate are captured. The TFPD supplemented by other databases like the DCIS and the LIMS will ensure that the data needs for the calibration exercise are met and fulfilled to the extent possible. When time series data were not available, the researchers utilized relevant data from the FHWA's Long Term Pavement Performance Studies (LTPP). This interim report summarizes the activities performed during the first 7 months of the project, when the current ...
