Different backcalculation results for the same material properties are caused by different structural geometry. In this paper, based on real simulation results for typical pavement systems using 3-dimensional FE models, modified AREA graphs are proposed to graphically backcalculate modulus of elasticity of slab and subgrade based on center deflection and AREA. In modified graph for single infinity slab models, deflection and AREA are increased in deeper depth to bedrock. But, effects of depth to bedrock more than 4.0 meters on backcalculation results are negligible. And, center deflection and AREA generated from multi-finite slab models are larger than those of single infinity slab models with same depth to bedrock.
