The curves are provided in alphabetical order according
to distress types, covering first asphalt surfaced

As explained in chapter 3, the following five steps are
involved in calculating the PCI for a sample unit::

e. Step 5. The PCI is computed using the relation
PCI = 100CDV. In the example, PCI= 100-33 = 67; the
rating is good.
Using figure C-1, find .24 on the distress density line.
