Abstract : The evaluation of the U. S. Naval Air Station, Miramar, is presented with the allowable gross load capacities of the runways, taxiways, and parking aprons for single, dual, single tandem, and dual tandem wheel assembly aircraft. Information is also included on the construction history, climatic data and current aircraft traffic. Results of the field and laboratory tests on the pavements and subsurface materials are included in the tables. Results of the evaluation show that the load-carrying capacity of the runways, taxiways, and parking aprons with the exception of Parking Apron 2 and the 8-in.thick section in Parking Apron 5 are capable of withstanding the loads imposed by current aircraft. However, some localized areas in the asphaltic concrete portion of Runway 6R-24L did not meet the present requirements. (Author)
