A Mechanistic Pavement Performance Assessment under Excessive Moisture
Welcome to PaveSafeTM
PaveSafeTM is a mechanistic toolkit intended to help road agencies and engineers to evaluate pavement performance during and after flooding and other sources of excessive moisure; main features include:
1. Hydraulic Analysis including unsaturated flow within base, subbase, and subgrade layers.
2. Embedded moisture-dependent material properties.
3. Transient pavement performance under different climatic scenarios and vehicle classes.
4. A guided load restriction decision platform based on prescribed threshold surface deflections.
PaveSafe is under development by the research team at the University of New Hampshire.
