Abstract: The current pavement design methods place much of its emphasis on structural analysis to provide a pavement with an adequate structural capacity against different design failure modes. Unfortunately, the functional performance of pavements is not adequately addressed. This study stresses the importance of functional requirements and how to incorporate functional considerations into pavement design and pavement management systems. In the design phase, skid resistance considerations are employed in the selection of aggregates. In the operation phase, a procedure for determining the terminal rut depth based on wet-weather driving safety consideration is proposed for pavement maintenance planning in a pavement management system. A procedure for determining safe wet-weather speed limits is also proposed based on the consideration of stopping sight distance and minimum skid resistance. This research also deals with the safety and noise reduction properties of porous pavements.
