Abstract:

The design and construction of a 9-inch thick prestressed concrete section in an airfield taxiway is reported. The 75 by 1550-foot pavement contains three 500-foot long prestressed items with appurtenant grade beams and overlay slabs at the ends of each item. The post-tensioning method, using tendons made of a group of 14-inch button-headed high tensile strength steel wires, was used to prestress the pavement items. The longitudinal and transverse prestress for all items was 350 and 175 psi respectively. The report presents information on features of the design and construction of the pavement and the foundation under the pavement. Author
