    Abstract

    The report and work of COST Action 333 sets in place the foundation for a coherent, cost-effective and harmonised European pavement design method. In order to do this, the work programme focused on information gathering, identification of requirements and the selection of the necessary design elements for such a European design method. During the course of the Action, 20 countries signed the Memorandum of Understanding and participated in the work, thus showing a very high level of interest in the work programme and results.The document contains a very thorough review of the position in Europe at the present time and identifies the basic framework for a design method. It then clearly shows the necessary steps to be taken in the future in order to arrive at a method based on current best practice in the shorter term, and then to move to improved versions.
