STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF PAVEMENTS FOR LIGHT AIRCRAFT

This report presents structural design criteria for airfield pavements to be used by light aircraft; i.e., those with gross weights less than 30,000 lb. Presented are criteria for conventional flexible and rigid pavements, for rigid and flexible pavements containing stabilized layers and membrane-encapsulated soil layers, and for unsurfaced areas; a cost-benefit analysis; and a construction guide for thin concrete pavements.
