DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE AIRPORT PAVEMENTS

This report provides design procedures for continuously reinforced concrete (CRC) airport pavements. The basic physical-mathematical model and applicable analyses are discussed. Thickness design procedures for both new CRC pavements and CRC overlays are presented for both civil and military aircraft. Methods of designing steel reinforcement, construction joints, and terminal treatment systems are included. All of these procedures are recommended for immediate use. /Author/
