PAVEMENT TESTS TO PROVIDE FOR THE JUMBO JETS

PRELIMINARY RESULTS HAVE BEEN OBTAINED RESPECTING THE BEHAVIOR OF VARIOUS THICKNESSES OF FLEXIBLE AND RIGID PAVEMENT UNDER ACTUAL TRAFFIC OF A LANDING GEAR OF THE C-5A AIRCRAFT. A COMPLEX OF INSTRUMENT MEASUREMENTS HAS BEEN OBTAINED FOR EACH PAVEMENT TYPE FOR THE C-5A, FOUR-WHEEL COMPONENTS OF THE BOEING 747 LANDING GEAR, AND SINGLE-WHEEL COMPONENTS OF BOTH. IT IS INTENDED THAT DETAILED ANALYSES WILL RESULT IN IMPROVEMENT DESIGN CRITERIA SUITABLE FOR ACCOMMODATION OF THE VERY HEAVY MULTIPLEWHEEL AIRCRAFT KNOWN TO BE FORTHCOMING. /AUTHOR/
