Presentation of the French Guide to the Application of European Standards for Bituminous Mixtures and Surface Dressings for Airport Pavements

Given the specific nature of airport pavements, and the appearance of new product standards derived from European standards, this study helps project managers to make the right product choices for their airport pavement construction and rehabilitation projects. The first part of this communication provides a reminder of airport terminology and definitions. The second part indicates the procedure to be followed when choosing products and defining the performance requirements of mixtures (formulation) and the characteristics of their components, in order to provide the best possible response to the project requirements. The third part provides recommendations for characteristics to be achieved, both in laboratory testing (mix design sample for type testing, and formulation levels) and on site, from production of the mixture to its application. The annexes consist of various summary tables intended to facilitate the designer’s task.
