Pavement deflection measurements have been collected on various pavement types by both research and the Pavement Management Branch of the Transportation Cabinet for several years. This report outlines the establishment of a data base of deflection measurements which have been collected. A index program has been developed to search the available data base for pavement sections which meet given criteria. This data base will provide up-to-date information which may be used for both research and pavement management activities. The presence of historical data will assist in evaluating the structural performance of various pavement types. It will also provide additional information for life-cycle-cost analysis of pavements.
