The U.S Federal Highway Administration has released a report in September of 2018 titled, “Proposed Performance-Prediction Equations and Threshold Triggers for Thin-Overlay Treatments Using the Long-Term Pavement Performance Database,” which discusses the developments in the guidelines and performance-prediction equations used to select the most appropriate time to apply a thin-overlay treatment based on the condition of the existing pavement. The purpose of applying thin-overlays is to correct surface defects, improve ride quality, improve safety characteristics and extend pavement life without increasing the structural capacity of the pavement. The application of a thin-overlay is expected to extend the life of a pavement by 8–10 years, although this range may vary depending on traffic, environmental conditions, quality of the materials and workmanship (Elwardany el at.,2018).
