  1. Driving Indiana’s Economic Growth

  2. APAI 2010 ANNUAL MEETING HOT TOPICS • MEPDG • DARWin-ME • ALTERNATE PAVEMENT DESIGN • SAFETY EDGE

  3. PAVEMENT DESIGN • MECHANISTIC EMPIRICAL PAVEMENT DESIGN GUIDE (MEPDG) • Mechanistic Models • Traffic • Climate • Materials

  4. MEPDG (Analysis Tool) • Predicts Stresses and Strains • Predicts Pavement Distresses • Compares Distresses to Allowable • Calculates Reliability • Pass / Fail

  5. PAVEMENT DESIGN RESULTS Thinner HMA Thinner PCCP RISK ! Pay Attention to the Subgrade

  6. MEPDG (Trial & Error) • DARWin-ME 1.0 Research Software • Run Time (one trial) • HMA 20 to 90 minutes • PCCP 15 to 30 minutes • Reliability • Final Design • Typically 2 to 5 runs • Thinnest not Exceeding Distresses

  7. Background DARWin-ME supports AASHTO’s Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide published in 2008 Work product of NCHRP projects 1-37A and 1-40D Nearly a decade of development Base software: Freeware, available through the Transportation Research Board DARWin-ME covers 17 pavement design situations New concrete and asphalt pavements and various types of asphalt and concrete overlays

  8. DARWin-ME Inputs/Outputs System Inputs System Outputs Project information Design information Materials & structure data Traffic data Climate data Rehabilitation information Initialization data Input summary Climate summary Design pass/fail checks Material properties summary Pavement distress summary/charts

  9. DARWin-ME 2.0 Pooled Fund • Provide the transportation community with a production level, state-of-the-art software tool for the design of new and rehabilitated pavement structures consistent with AASHTO’s MEPDG

  10. DARWin-ME Planned Improvements Efficiency Increase software speed Automated thickness optimization Batch mode Sensitivity Functionality SI version Traffic caps Stability Correct reported bugs (Task Force directed) Improve error handling

  11. DARWin-ME Task Force Judy Corley-Lay (Chair), North Carolina Marta Juhasz, Alberta, Canada Jay Goldbaum, Colorado Dave Andrewski, Indiana Williams F. Barstis, Mississippi J.F. Bledsoe, Missouri Julian Bendana, New York Madgy Mikhail, Texas Trenton Clark, Virginia Interested Agency Liaisons: Federal Highway Administration Transportation Association of Canada

  12. Current Project Status Project solicitation issued in July 2008 Received commitments from 20 member agencies and the FHWA. Sole Source Contract to ARA Correct known bugs and those discovered during development Incorporate enhancements outlined in solicitation Alpha testing completed November 2010 Beta testing by three agencies in November and December Software Release April 11, 2011

  17. Material Properties – AC

  18. MaterialProperties–PCC

  19. Material Properties – Non-Stabilized Materials & Subgrade

  20. Material Properties – Stabilized Layer

  21. Traffic HIGHWAY CAPACITY TRAFFIC INPUTS VEHICLE CLASS MONTHLY ADJUSTMENT HOURLY ADJUSTMENT AXLES PER TRUCK

  22. Highway Capacity Limits • Freeway • Multilane highway • 2-lane highway • Level • Rolling • Urban • Rural

  23. Highway Capacity Limits

  24. Climate

  25. Runtime Improvements UR01 – Asphalt pavement type analysis shall be improved to be completed within 15 minutes PC comparisons – PRELIMINARY RESULTS Overall* - time measure does not include Summary process for Excel report generation

  26. License Fees for FY2011 Individual License 1 - The single user license allows for only one user. For two, three or four users, multiple single user licenses will have to be purchased. Single user - $5,000 Site License 1 - Site licenses based on the number of users and single user licenses will be available for DARWin-ME. The unlimited site license allows use of DARWin-ME on an unlimited number of workstations within an agency, and permits cities/counties, and contractors/consultants employed by the agency, access to the product on the Member Department’s network. Site License – up to 9 users $20,000   Site License – up to 14 users $30,000   Site License – unlimited users $40,000 Educational License - will not be offered until FY 2012. 1 Because the software won’t be available until after the fiscal year has begun, license fees will be prorated for first time licensees. License fees are annual 29

  27. ALTERNATE PAVEMENT DESIGN A CONTRACT LET WITH DIFFERENT PAVEMENT TYPE OPTIONS (usually HMA & PCCP) THAT A CONTRACTOR CAN BID EITHER OR BOTH OPTIONS. DIFFERING DESIGN LIVES ARE ACCOUNTED FOR BY CALCULATING A 50 YEAR LIFE CYCLE COST FACTOR FOR EACH TYPE. THE WINNING BID IS THE LOWEST SUM OF THE BID PLUS THE FACTOR.

  28. HMA STRATEGY • 20 Year Initial Design Life • Joint Seal at Year 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, & 18 • Mill and Functional Overlay at 20 Years • Joint Seal at Year 23, 26, 29, & 32 • Mill and Resurface • Joint Seal at Year 38, 41, 44, & 47

  29. PCCP STRATEGY • 30 Year Initial Design Life • Reseal Joints at Year 8, 16, & 24 • Mill and Functional Overlay at Year 30 • Reseal Joints at Year 33, 36, & 39 • Mill and Resurface at Year 42 • Reseal Joints at Year 45 & 48

  30. 50 Year Life Cycle Cost factor • > 10 PERCENT • USE LESS COSTLY • < 10 PERCENT • ALTERNATE BID • SPECIAL CASE • Settlement Areas • Presence of Distillates

  31. Contract Bid plus Factor • Initial Costs – Contractor’s Bid • LCCA (50 years) Present Value • HMA Strategy • PCCP Strategy

  32. RECENT CONTRACT FACTORS • HMA - $2,353,504.28 • PCCP - $1,480,742.91
