Describes a CAE package, supplemented by a powerful database handler for storing geotechnical data of any given geo-map for the design, analysis and management both rigid and flexible pavements. Pavement design and analysis are based on the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) guide. The cost and performance of different maintenance strategies on flexible pavements can be undertaken and evaluated. The database is based on a hierarchical data structure which provides speed and flexibility of information access as well as expansibility. The menu-driven package guides the user through the different steps involved in the design, analysis graphs, and maintenance strategies for pavement rehabilitation. Throughout the design stage, the user has the option of using the information stored in the database or relying on their own data. The design and analysis of pavements, complemented by a geotechnical database makes this package a powerful CAE tool for civil engineering pavement designers.<>
