Abstract:This paper describes the theory and applica-tion of a methodology for evaluating the relative effects of load and non-load-related factors on rigid pavement performance. The computation is based upon aggregated pavement performance data and pavement rou-tine maintenance cost data which can be acquired rela-tively easily on a regular basis at both network and project levels. An integral part of the methodology is a procedure developed to account for the effects of routine maintenance on pavement performance. The Interstate highways in Indiana are analyzed to demon-strate the application of the proposed methodology.
