This report summarizes the work involved in customizing the HIgh PERformance PAVing (HIPERPAV)? software for the state of Wisconsin. Under this research project, HIPERPAV was customized to use the same terminology and designations currently employed by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) and the Wisconsin concrete pavement industry. Technical documentation describing the proper use of HIPERPAV and selection of input values was produced under this research to further improve the implementation process within the State. In order to accomplish the above, information was obtained from the Wisconsin Highway Research Program (WHRP) oversight committee and Wisconsin stakeholders in the paving industry. In addition, an information search of Wisconsin typical design standards and construction procedures was also performed. Dr. Hani Titi of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee produced a report on the investigation of typical input values and terminology on concrete pavements commonly used in Wisconsin.
