This work offered a new method for accessing the mechanical properties of pavement layers based on data obtained by a moving measurement platform. The method has the following features: (i) calculations are based on tracking distances to a point on the pavement surface, (ii) measurements are not required outside the zone of load influence, and (iii) possibility to access absolute pavement deflections. First, the envisioned platform-design and required readings were presented; next, the interpretation method was outlined and then applied to synthetic (computer-generated) data. Perfect convergence was achieved when the correct pavement model and accurate input data were employed. Also, when artificial errors were introduced for assessing sensitivities, only small deviations were generated. Based on these promising outcomes the method will be further studied and developed to support the construction of an operational measurement platform.
