Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide: A Manual of Practice, 3rd Edition

This April 2020 updated manual describes the pavement design methodology termed mechanistic-empirical (M-E) pavement design. Based on engineering mechanics that have been validated through extensive road test performance data, the manual presents information necessary for pavement design engineers to use the MEPDG design and analysis method. The manual references AASHTOWare Pavement ME Design™, M-E Pavement design software, commercially available through AASHTOWare, AASHTO’s software development program.

The AASHTO Publications Style Manual and Process Guide was created to assist the many committee volunteers, vendors, consultants, and internal staff in providing, editing, formatting, and preparing content for AASHTO publications. It provides information for authors, editors, and designers about AASHTO design preferences, style and editorial rules, and print and digital publication guidelines.
