Preface Para1 Pavement evaluation techniques which involve the use of state-of-art technologies and tools for functional and structural evaluation of pavements have become necessity today for health monitoring of road infrastructure and to take appropriate decisions for maintenance, planning and budgeting of road network based on scientific tools. The state-of-art infrastructure facilities available at CSIR-Central Road Research Institute motivates us to write this manual which concisely covers all the major equipment of pavement evaluation, so that the students and field practitioners understand the methodology and follow the correct procedure for functional and structural evaluation of pavement for various purposes.
