TESTING AND EVALUATION OF CONCRETE AIRPORT PAVEMENTS

This report presents a test method by which it is possible to rapidly obtain information on bearing capacity and homogeneity of concrete runways built on cement treated subbase materials. A light vibrator is used for this type of testing, and the measured deflections are brought into a precise relationship with the results of full-scale tests carried out with loads corresponding to those of a B 747 landing gear. The method is based on field experience from the runways of Zurich International Airport.
