In case of fitting geometric model of pavement rutting to the real data , the model of a high order function has the advantage of goodness offitness. However, it also has the disadvantage of versatility. In this study, we developed the pavement rutting models with quadratic function and spline function for quantification of pavement rutting characteristics on road surface. The two developed models are verified in respect of the adaptability of these shapes and the accommodation for the
