In recent years, Tthis is a matter had been which received special interests from the public opinionscommunication, and media in general and the transportation eEngineers in the transportation particularfield in last few years. The seminar participants were fully analyzed the reasons of the rutting phenomenon, then offerreding some the measures for overcomesolutions.

BesidesMoreover, Assoc.Prof.Dr. Bui Phu Doanh has introduced the method of mechanistic-empirical pavement design guide (ME PDG), which has been studied under funding from American National Academy of Sciences. The seminar participants also have been discussed about the advantages and disadvantages of ME PDG, revieweding to apply this method in the current real situation of Vietnam, the ability to apply in Vietnam atin the present and in the future.
