ASPHALT IN AIRPORT CONSTRUCTION: DESIGN AND MIX COMPOSITION

ASPHALT IM FLUGPLATZBAU; BEMESSUNG UND MISCHGUTZUSAMMENSETZUNG

The stresses in runways, taxiways and airfield aprons, the design according to empirical and analytical-empirical methods, and the advantages of asphalt pavements are described. Over 50% of the runway surfaces in the German republic are paved with asphalt. Examples of the construction of runways are presented. The composition of the asphalt mixes is extensively discussed. Because of the inadequate re-compaction by the traffic, the regulations valid for highway construction may not be employed. /TRRL/
