Other Design Tools
If you are wanting to design a concrete pavement with other design tools, great! We respectfully suggest using tools that have undergone rigorous use and validation over many years, including PavementME, AASHTO 93, StreetPave and WinPAS. We ask professionals to exercise caution if considering using our competitor’s software program for comparable designs because of black-box adjustment factors, arbitrary limits on input variables that do not align with industry standards, and imposition of design requirements where user-input is customary and warranted.
Wanting to design a flexible pavement? You’ve come to the wrong place. We won’t pretend to be experts with our competitor’s product and wish not to misguide you in any way.
