CONVENTIONAL METHODS OF PAVEMENT DESIGN FOR AIRPORTS

METODI TRADIZIONALI DI CALCOLO PER PAVIMENTAZIONE AEROPORTUALI

Following an examination of the various parameters affecting the durability and strength of airport pavements, a review is presented of the increase in plane loads and landing gear. The equivalent load per single wheel of multiple undercarriages is defined, and various methods of pavement design (flexible and rigid) are analyzed by tables and graphs. Worked examples are given of the following methods of calculation: the CBR method; the US Navy method (mainly basd on Burmister's theory); the Portland Cement Association method; and the LCN (lead classification number) method. /TRRL/
