As the demand for the semi-rigid asphalt pavement reconstruction and maintenance technologies is increasing in the seasonal cold regions, the pavement performance deterioration models are essential for the success of the reconstruction and maintenance projects. This study is carried out to develop the deterioration models based on the preliminary investigation results of typical successful maintenances. All critical technical indexes concerning the asphalt pavement maintenance were studied. By combining the engineering practices, a long-term performance database of the semi-rigid asphalt pavement was established through a large amount of survey data, and the related environmental parameters. Based on the database achieved, the deterioration models of the semi-rigid asphalt pavement performances were built via the statistical regression method. It is concluded that the proposed deterioration models were useful and practical for the establishment of the maintenance decision of the semi-rigid asphalt pavements.
