AbstractCurrent empirical pavement design approaches are in the process of being replaced with mechanistic models. This study reviewed such a model entitled ?AASHTO 2002 Design Guide? to examine its sensitivity to variables with known influence on the performance of roads. The study focuses on evaluating the effectiveness of the manner in which material characteristics were incorporated in the analytical model.
