INTERIM REPORT OF FIELD TEST OF EXPEDIENT PAVEMENT REPAIRS (TEST ITEMS 1-15)

This report describes field tests of fifteen materials that showed potential for use in temporary, expedient repair of bomb craters in runways. The test facility consisted of a concrete surface placed over a crushed limestone base which in turn lay over a weak clay subgrade. Three 20-foot by 20-foot square sections were left open in the concrete to serve as test pits. The test facility was so constructed to allow for simulation of small bomb craters in a typical North Atlantic Treaty Organization runway. The test materials were used to repair the "craters" in the pavement. Upon completion of each repair, the resulting surface was tested with a load cart constructed to give the same load that would be experienced from taxiing of a modern fighter aircraft. This report describes the result of each of the tests and identifies areas requiring further research. (Author)
