Implements of husbandry (IoH) are vehicles designed for agricultural purposes and exclusively used in the conduct of agricultural operations.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 1019: Quantifying the Effects of Implements of Husbandry on Pavements presents mechanistic-based procedures and rudimentary software for estimating the effects of IoH on flexible and rigid pavements.
Supplemental to the report are NCHRP Web-Only Document 338: Quantifying the Effects of Implements of Husbandry on Pavements: Appendices, software and a user manual for flexible pavements, and software and a user manual for rigid pavements.
