COMPARATIVE PERFORMANCE OF STRUCTURAL LAYERS IN PAVEMENT SYSTEMS; VOLUME 2: ANALYSIS OF TEST SECTION DATA AND PRESENTATION OF DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION PROCEDURES

Comparative performance analyses of full-scale pavement test sections indicated that reductions in conventional flexible and rigid pavement thickness requirements are warranted when high-quality stabilized layers are incorporated in the pavement structure. Based on the findings in the analyses, design procedures for airport pavement systems incorporating certain types of stabilized layers were developed. Construction procedures for stabilized layers were developed based on field operations. This report summarizes pertinent data from the test sections, describes the analyses, and presents the design and construction procedures.
