Guide for the Local Calibration of the Mechanistic-Empirical by AASHTO


This booklet offers suggestions to calibrate the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement layout advisor (MEPDG) software program to neighborhood stipulations, guidelines, and fabrics. It presents the street neighborhood with a state-of-the-practice instrument for the layout of latest and rehabilitated pavement constructions, in line with mechanistic-empirical (M-E) rules. The layout approach calculates pavement responses (stresses, lines, and deflections) and makes use of these responses to compute incremental harm through the years. The process empirically relates the cumulative harm to saw pavement distresses.

The null hypothesis is as follows: (6-4) where: yMeasured = Measured value, and xPredicted = Predicted value using the model. It is possible that the above hypothesis could be accepted (the sum of the residual errors are indifferent to zero), but the model still be biased. Two other model parameters (termed intercept and slope estimators) should be used to fully evaluate model bias using the following fitted regression model between the measured (y) and predicted (x) values, as well as the variability in the measured value associated with the distributed errors for each predicted value.

This condition generally requires more runs and a higher level of effort to reduce the bias. 3. The residual errors versus the predicted values exhibit a significant and variable slope that appears to be dependent on the predicted value. The precision of the prediction model is poor and the accuracy is time or number of loading cycles dependent—there is poor correlation between the predicted and measured values. This condition is the most difficult to evaluate because the exponent of the number of loading cycles needs to be considered.
