NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING OF AIRPORT PAVEMENTS

A study of nondestructive testing techniques for the evaluation of airport pavements is summarized. The report includes (a) the selection and preparation of specifications for nondestructive testing of airport pavement systems, (b) the development of a methodology for evaluating the load-carrying capacity of airport pavement systems by using the equipment selected, (c) the development of an evaluation procedure based on this methodology, and (d) the development of a mathematical model that describes pavement response to dynamic loading. /Author/
