Performance specification for pavement structure design of farm road was established by MAFF in 2005. On the conventional asphalt pavement and concrete pavement, the performance requirement is understood widely, and the performance-based design is almost established. On the sediment pavement typically constructed at the farm road, although the performance requirement is arranged, neither a performance index nor its value is shown. In this research, in order to clarify the performance verification method for farm road, the characteristic of some materials which were applicable to the road surface of the sediment pavement was evaluated. As a result, to evaluate the rutting resistance or the aggregate scattering resistance of the sediment pavement materials, and to estimate the modulus of elasticity are possible by applying a conventional method.
