Pavement condition ratings and rehabilitation needs are discussed along with pavement overlay design techniques based on layered elastic theory, vibratory nondestructive testing, falling weight deflectometer measurements, visible pavement distress, and road test data. The minimization of reflection cracking in bituminous concrete overlays on portland cement pavements and in asphalt concrete overlays is also discussed.
