qThis report summarizes the results of research to evaluate, calibrate, and validate the Enhanced Integrated Climatic Model (EICM) incorporated in the original Version 0.7 (July 2004 release) of the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) software with measured materials data from the Long-Term Pavement Performance Seasonal Monitoring Program (LTPP SMP) pavement sections. The report further describes subsequent changes made to the EICM to improve its prediction of moisture equilibrium for granular bases. The report will be of particular interest to pavement design engineers in state highway agencies and industry ...q--Foreword.Then the individual masses passing and retained on respective sieves were weighed separately and combined prior to compaction. The same ... The HMA core was first waterproofed on the sides with paint and then a mini-dam was formed on the top from silicone. The core was then placed inside a 5-gallon bucket on a bed of dry sand. ... The two tests that did show measurable permeation through the cores belonged to the WesTrack site in Nevada and the Big Timber site in Montana.
