Abstract : The evaluation of the U. S. Marine Corps Air Station, El Toro, California, is presented with safe maximum gross load capacities of the runways, taxiways and parking aprons for single, dual and dual tandem, wheel assembly aircraft as computed from the evaluation tests. Information is also included covering the construction and maintenance history and the current aircraft traffic. The results of the evaluation show that only a few of the pavements are being overloaded by some of the aircraft presently assigned to the air station. (Author)
