ELMOD Software for Pavement Analysis | Dynatest



Dynatest's passion for pavement analysis has led to the development of ELMOD, the most advanced pavement analysis program on the market today.

Utilizing the latest research provided by the Heavy Vehicle Simulator and based on 35 years of worldwide consultancy experience, ELMOD is unparalleled at modeling pavement performance and is practical, fast and easy to use.

ELMOD analyzes the pavement response from the FWD and HWD by determining the modulus, stress and strain of each significant layer. It reports the layer of failure and residual life by utilizing the LCCA module which allows the user to select the optimum rehabilitation alternatives.

Key Benefits

  • Rapid analysis

  • Can be used to determine the optimum rehabilitation alternatives

  • Can consider new innovative materials, that may be better suited to local environmental conditions

  • Determines the effects of overloading, allowing additional rehabilitation costs to be determined

  • Utilizes mechanistic-empirical analysis techniques that work over a wide variety of pavements types, loading and local environmental conditions

  • Parameter files can be easily setup with local material, vehicle loading and rehabilitation options

  • Determines moduli, stresses and strains for up to 5 layers

  • Integrated into the ELMOD core program, FEM/LET/MET gains the advantages of Finite Element Method, Linear Elastic Theory and Method of Equivalent Thicknesses Theory by seeding one value into the next, providing a very accurate analysis

  • The LCCA module allows the user to compare multiple rehabilitation scenarios over a 20-25 year period. Pavement modeling is based on roughness, friction, pavement distress, as well as the structural analysis

  • The PCN module is used to rate the strength of airport pavements based on results from the ELMOD backcalculation procedure
