A mechanistic/empirical pavement thickness design program based on familiar Asphalt Institute methods. An integrated pavement design suite for highways, streets, parking lots, airports, and industrial facilities supporting heavy wheel loads.
The software is written in strict conformance to the Asphalt Institute MS-1, MS-11, MS-17, and MS-23 manuals. The Asphalt Institute developed SW-1 to provide users the capability to design asphalt pavements for highways, streets, parking lots, airports, industrial facilities supporting heavy wheel loads, and other applications. SW-1 provides users an integrated pavement design suite to provide an unparalleled range of capability. A few examples of the uses of the SW-1 program are:
- Interstate Highways
- Urban arterials and collectors
- Residential streets
- County roads
- Parking lots
- Marine applications
- Boat ramps
- Port facilities
- Log sorting yards
- Commercial airports
- General aviation airports
- Military airfields
- Advanced analysis using DAMA
Notice: The Asphalt Institute has discontinued the SW-1 Thickness Design & SW-2 Mix Design software packages. There is no plan to update either software package. The Asphalt Institute is allowing SW-1 and SW-2 to be downloaded free of charge. However, No support is offered or available for the SW-1 or SW-2 software package.
SW-1 will require a one-time unlock key be generated. Once the application is installed, the first time it is run, the splash screen will display an 18-digit code. Email that code to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an unlock key.

Asphalt Institutes SW-2 Mix Design Programfeaturing Superpave Mix Design, Superpave Trial Blending, Marshall Mix Design, and Marshall Trial Blending.
Thickness Plot is created to display plate elements thicknesses for flat elements selections like frames, decks and longitudinals in Femap.
MOVLOADS is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of analysis of simple-span members subjected to from one up to eight moving wheel loads with up to seven wheel spacings.
HighRoad is an interactive graphical application for the geometric design of roads and highways.
Calculates bending moments and shear forces for loads on a single span or continuous multi-span beam using the moment distribution method.
LPILE is a special-purpose program based on rational procedures for analyzing a pile under lateral loading using the p-y method.
