The Highway Development & Management (HDM) software simulates total life cycle conditions and costs for an analysis period under a user specified scenario of circumstances. A network economic evaluation is the most challenging use of the model, but the effort is well justified due to the potential savings on transportation costs achieved by comparing various alternatives and performing a budget constraint optimization
This dissertation deals with a new, rational approach for design of bituminous overlays for Indian highways. Salient features of an in-vehicle FWD, BACKGAIIT, a program for back calculation of layer module, have been presented in the paper. Details of various investigations conducted on different highways using the in-vehicle FWD have also been presented in the paper.
