The Report of COST Action 324 describes the work carried out to integrate national studies on long term pavement performance for use at European level. Fifteen countries participated in this 3 year Action in which the current position was assessed, and the methodology necessary to ensure future cooperation in the topic within Europe was developed. Firstly, an inventory of pavement performance studies and mathematical models is presented together with an analysis of the factors believed to influence pavement performance. A methodology is proposed for normalizing the methods used in the participating countries for measuring pavement condition data by inspection of the distresses visible on the road surface. An assessment is presented of the national pavement distress manuals.
