STEEL FIBROUS CONCRETE FOR AIRPORT PAVEMENT APPLICATIONS

This report describes a study conducted to develop criteria for the design and construction of steel fibrous concrete airport pavements. Controlled, accelerated traffic tests and field tests conducted as a part of this study and similar tests conducted by other agencies are described and the results from these tests compiled. The results from all tests were analyzed and used in the formulation of criteria for designing steel fibrous concrete pavements and overlays. Recommended practices and procedures for batching, mixing, and placing fibrous concrete were formulated. Conclusions based on this study indicate that fibrous concrete pavements will perform better than plain concrete pavements, will result in thinner pavements, and can be produced and placed with conventional paving equipment and techniques.
