The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Research Division wanted to develop and implement an interactive CD-ROM as a New Jersey-specific companion manual to the 1993 AASHTO Guide for Design of Pavement Structures. The research team developed a framework for the companion manual that met NJDOT’s requirements. The manual chapters, sections, and procedures were set-up similar to those in the 1993 AASHTO Guide for Design of Pavement Structures, to allow for easy referencing. New Jersey-specific values for parameters needed in the structural analysis and design of pavements were added and identified. This document outlines the requirements for a CD-ROM based Multimedia Companion to the 1993 AASHTO Guide for Design of Pavement Structures, sponsored by NJDOT and developed by Rutgers CAIT, AID Inc. and ATC Brunswick.
