STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOR OF CONCRETE AIRFIELD PAVEMENTS - THE TEST PROGRAM

TE GREAT INCREASE IN WEIGHT OF CERTAIN TYPES OF AIRCRAFT AND THE TENDENCY TO CONCENTRATE THE LOADS ON A MINIMUM NUMBER OF WHEELS PRESENTS PROBLEMS IN THE DESIGN OF RUNWAY PAVEMENTS. TESTS WERE PERFORMED TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF IMPACT OF A LANDING WHEEL OF VARIABLE LOAD ON A RIGID PAVEMENT, TO MEASURE REACTIONS OF A PAVEMENT UNDER A SET OF IDEALIZED CONDITIONS AS ASSUMED BY WESTERGAARD'S THEORY, AND TO STUDY THE EFFECT OF ACCELERATED TRAFFIC ON RIGID PAVEMENTS. /AUTHOR/
