1 Implementation of Darwin – ME Chris Wagner, PE July 26-29, 2010 Kansas City, MO

2 Hawaii Alaska Does SHA Use or Plan to Use MEPDG? N0 -12 YES - 40 2007 Survey

3 Where are we now?

4 State implementation activities Validation Activities Status of DARWin ME Planned Activites for DARWin ME

5 5 Software Capabilities-Import Raw Data Climate: icm files Traffic: AHTD Traffic Monitoring Data

6 6 Software Capabilities-Traffic Data Check

7 7 Software Capabilities-Materials E*

8 8 Software Capabilities- Retrieving Data Very similar tools will be included in DARWin ME

12 Continued MEPDG Validation at Auburn University

13 S11– As Built – Fatigue Cracking at Auburn University

14 Continued Validation at Auburn University

15 What about Polymers?

16 Strain Response Looking at Strains Directly at Auburn University

17 Darwin-ME output

18 DARWin ME Sneak Peek

19 DARWin ME — Improvements Redesign GUI using.NET 3.5 framework in C# User configurable screens Agency defined data libraries Input control at the central office Expansion capabilities for new analysis engines Improved display on large or multiple monitors Improved error handling stability and error display Multiple project editing Handicap accessibility options Improved reporting (stability, speed and quality) Utilities for importing previous version files, third party data Multiple language extensibility

20 DARWin ME —Improvements Efficiency Increase software speed Automated thickness optimization Batch mode Sensitivity Functionality SI version Traffic caps Stability Correct reported bugs (Task Force directed) Improve error handling
