The development and use of a pavement management system (PMS) is essential for owner/agencies to make wise use of available resources. A good PMS will help managers determine when rehabilitation and preventive maintenance work needs to be done in order to optimize overall highway system performance at the lowest cost. An inventory of all roads and their pavement condition index (based on a pavement condition survey) will enable managers to develop “what if” scenarios with different treatments in order to determine the alternative strategy that will result in the best cost-benefit ratio. The course will also review the type of data that needs to be collected and some of the types of equipment available for that purpose.

J. Richard Willis

Dr. Richard Willis joined NCAT in January 2009 as a Post-Doctoral Fellow. He received a BS in physical science from Freed-Hardeman University in 2003 and a BCE from Auburn University in 2004. In 2005, he graduated with a Masters degree in Civil Engineering from Auburn University. Dr. Willis has been involved in several studies at the NCAT Pavement Test Track. He was a member of the forensic team that investigated the causes of multiple pavement failures. He used mechanistic pavement models, laboratory produced data, and forensic trenching to help verify debonding in pavements, the energy ratio concept, and strain regimes in perpetual pavements. Dr. Willis was also among the first research engineers to quantify acceptable variability in embedded pavement instrumentation both between gauges and within a single gauge. Dr. Willis has played a vital role in developing the test plans for the 2009 NCAT Pavement Test Track as well as finalizing the results from the 2006 Test Track experiment. He is currently developing relationships between laboratory performance testing data and field performance measurements for flow number and the bending beam fatigue test. He is also beginning to study how warm-mix asphalt influences pavement performance in the field when coupled with high percentages of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP).
