Abstract [en]

One particular challenge in pavement design is comparing the

results of the different design methods. Some methods, such as the AASHTO

(American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials)

Flexible design method and the AASHTO Rigid method were developed in the

US, and use US units, as well as typical design loads and specifications. The

same can be said for the Florida Cracking method. Other methods, such as

the Swedish PMS-Object use SI units and different design axle load.

This thesis describes the development of a MATLAB based unified

Graphical design interface, called MULTI-PAVE, which implements all the

aforementioned design methods using a unified input, to achieve comparable

design pavement thicknesses. The program is validated by comparing its

output against independently written modules.
