FATIGUE-TRANSFER FUNCTIONS: HOW DO THEY COMPARE?

The SHRP and Asphalt Institute models used suggested field shift factors (FSFs). The fatigue models studied were originally developed for predicting crack initiation in the laboratory. In using these models to predict fatigue life in actual pavements, crack propagation is usually addressed through an empirically determined FSF.
