DESIGN OF PAVEMENT WITH HIGH-QUALITY STRUCTURAL LAYERS

The purpose of this study was to develop design criteria and construction procedures for airport pavements incorporating structural layers of high-quality materials. The study was accomplished as follows: Two specially designed test sections of pavement composed of items representing a range of stabilization efforts were constructed and trafficked to failure under controlled, accelerated conditions; Data from the specially designed test sections and from previous studies of test sections composed of stabilized and high-quality materials were compiled and used as input to an analysis of construction and performance characteristics of pavements incorporating high-quality materials; and the results of the analysis were used to formulate design criteria and construction procedures. /Author/
