MnPAVE Logo MnPAVE - Mechanistic-Empirical Flexible Pavement Design

MnPAVE is a software program developed cooperatively by the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the University of Minnesota. It consists of three input modules: Climate, Structure, and Traffic; and three design levels: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. It was calibrated using performance data collected in 2006 on county state aid highways (CSAH) in Minnesota.
