This paper presents a comparison of results from a reliability-based model for predicting thermal cracking in asphalt pavements to monitored field performance. The reliability model accounts for the variability in the component design variables and the correlation between two failure modes. The field data is collected by the Canadian Strategic Highway Research Program (C-SHRP). The comparison was beneficial in assessing the model capabilities and encourages further efforts to employ field performance data.
