    Planning and implementing a nondestructive testing (NDT) program for pavements is an interesting and often frustrating task. The authors of this paper perceived a need to summarize their experiences while using four NDT devices to test pavement sections on the federal-aid interstate and primary highway systems in Indiana. The lessons learned during the planning and execution of the project can be instructive to organizations planning similar studies. It will be of particular interest to those persons who have little experience conducting a project of this nature. Many of the basic concepts of planning, organizing, and conducting an NDT program are included. Personal experiences of the authors are given to help reinforce these concepts.
