This report documents the analysis methods used to develop the Equivalent Single Axle Load (ESAL) forecasting program for Superpave projects. In addition, this report discusses the procedures used in the ESAL forecasting program to forecast ESALs in the design lane for pavement resurfacing/overlay projects which are consistent with the Superpave process of asphaltic mixture design.
