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
* SW-1 download link provides trial version of the software.
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.
SUMO is a highly portable, microscopic road traffic simulation package designed to handle large road networks.
Abnormal Load Vehicles, HB Vehicles, BD21 Annex D Vehicles and BD86 STGO Vehicles are analysed as moving loads across a single or multi-span continuous line beam to determine critical bending moments and shear forces.
