Abstract : During the period October 2015 through May 2016, the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg, MS, worked to develop a prototype tool kit comprised of equipment and materials needed to repair concrete and asphalt craters on airfield pavements during times of inclement weather. The tool kit is used to supplement an existing crater repair tool kit developed for fair weather scenarios. The items selected for inclusion in the kit were based on previous research and evaluation of crater repair methods and during specific full-scale inclement weather crater repair experiments. This report presents a summary of the research conducted to help determine the prototype Inclement Weather Crater Repair Tool Kit contents and also presents the specific details of the kit, including inventory and drawings.
