The objective of this project was to render the Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) road assessment methods accessible to field engineers through a software package with a graphical user interface. The software implements both methods more effectively by integrating the complementary nature of GPR and FWD information. For instance, the use of FWD requires prior knowledge of pavement thickness, which is obtained independently from GPR.
