The effects of increased truck loads and higher tire pressures on performance of flexible pavements were investigated in this project. This Volume 1 report presents the research performed and the useful results obtained. Tire pressure studies were performed using both in field measurements and theoretical simulations of the effects of tire pressures on pavements. Volume 2, provides documentation for all of the computer programs developed on the project.
