Pavement Load Bearing Capacity Classification in Terms of PCN (Pavement Classification Number) Aeronautical Pavements: Air Base Nº6 - Montijo

Classificacao Da Capacidade De Carga Em Termos Do Pcn (Pavement Classification Number) Dos Pavimentos Aeronauticos Da Base Aerea Nº 6 No Montijo

This article describes the methodology followed in the calculation of the Pavement Classification Number (PCN) in the Air Base nº 6 - Montijo Aeronautical Pavements, through the interpretation of the Falling Weight Deflectometer’s (FWD) load results. Drillings in the pavement structure definition were performed and statistical methods for zoning the area of intervention and a study of the numerical values reliability were used. Software of specific calculation supplied by the Konsult & Utveckling (KUAB) was used for the structural analysis of the studied pavements.
