Decision-making Tool for the Selection of Pavement Preservation Treatments in General Aviation Airport Pavements

Adequate planning for airfield pavement preservation is required for efficient mitigation of pavement deterioration due to loading and environmental conditions. Large airports generally have trained staff for managing their pavement network and a significant budget for routine maintenance. However, there are many general aviation (GA) airports in the United States (U.S.) which may lack these resources. Therefore, technical rules for pavement preservation need to be simplified for GA airport managers. While the typical approach to managing these pavements is reactive, which requires costly rehabilitation/reconstruction, proactive preservation uses more frequent, low-cost treatments. In this paper, a tool for the selection of durable and cost-effective treatments for pavement preservation, and steps and database used for development of this tool are introduced. This tool can be used by non-technical decision makers in general aviation. The results for selection of treatments vary depending on different climate zones and airport traffic reflected on airport categories.
