Document summarizes a procedure to establish pay factors for asphalt concrete pavement construction using performance models for fatigue and rutting based on the analysis of accelerated pavement tests from the Caltrans Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS) and the WesTrack accelerated pavement performance test program. Results of the performance-based approach are compared with pay factors determined by the current Caltrans procedure using percent defective and experience-based weighting factors.
