In 1977, a methodology was .developed to evaluate pavement performance using dynamic (Road Rater) deflections. Since then, additional research has resulted in modifications ill the procedures. This paper presents the procedures presently used to evaluate flexible pavement structures. Background information is included on various procedures used by others. A sample set of data is presented and evaluated. A discussion is included on how the analyses of dynamic pavement deflections can be used to design overlays and in pavement management.
