Simplified Design Table for Minnesota Concrete Pavements

Simplified Design Table for Minnesota Concrete PavementsStatus:  Complete
Report Date:  07/29/2014


Researchers developed MnPAVE Rigid, mechanistic-empirical concrete pavement design software designed to replace RigidPave. To do so, they adapted AASHTO's Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide to Minnesota conditions, creating software that is portable and produces instantaneous results. An upcoming update of MnDOT's Pavement Design Manual will make MnPAVE Rigid its primary design program for concrete pavements.
