FLEXIBLE AIRPORT PAVEMENT EVALUATION FOR NEW GENERATION AIRCRAFT USING ILLI-PAVE-BASED CONCEPTS

The ILLI-PAVE axi-symmetric (single wheel) non-linear Finite Element model is proposed to evaluate the pavement structural suitability for aircraft incorporating new complex landing gears. Two procedures are presented to extend ILLI-PAVE single wheel solutions to multiple wheels. Several transfer function models are proposed to assess the load-induced pavement distress potential. Three levels of material characterization are recommended which address the accuracy/reliability of the evaluation process. For the covering abstract see ITRD E118503.
