INVESTIGATION OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS ON DIFFERENT SUBGRADES.
OHIO RIVER DIV LABS MARIEMONT
Pagination or Media Count:
The strengths of full size concrete airfield pavements were tested under static plate loads and under moving pneumatic tire wheel loads. In seeking to ascertain the effects in highly stressed concrete caused by occasional heavy wheel loads as normally characteristic of traffic on runways, the tests were carried to complete failure of the concrete. The slabs tested were 5, 6, 7, 8, and 10 inches thick 12.5 feet and 20 feet wide and all were 20 feet long with the exception of the apron series in which the slabs were 45 feet long. All slabs were of plain concrete except those of the apron which were lightly reinforced. Test data and results are given.
