MULTIPLE-WHEEL HEAVY GEAR LOAD PAVEMENT TESTS. VOLUME II. DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, AND BEHAVIOR UNDER TRAFFIC

Flexible and rigid pavement test sections were constructed and trafficked to obtain data to validate present criteria or develop new criteria for the evaluation and design of airfield pavements subjected to multiple-wheel heavy gear loads. Traffic was applied to the test sections with different test carts: a 12-wheel assembly that represented one main gear of a C-5A aircraft, a 6-wheel bogie of the 12-wheel assembly, a twin-tandem assembly that duplicated one twin-tandem component of the Boeing 747 assembly, and a single wheel. The volume presents details of the design, construction, and behavior of the flexible and rigid pavements under traffic. (Author)
