Pagination or Media Count:
This investigation of heavy duty rigid pavement was conducted on a specially constructed test section at the Lockbourne Air Force Base near Columbus, Ohio, and forms an integral part of a series of such investigations conducted by the Rigid Pavement Laboratory, Ohio River Division Laboratories, Mariemont, Ohio, for the Office, Chief of Engineers. Construction of the test section was begun 13 August 1946 and was completed on 3 October 1946. The purpose of this investigation was to study the behavior of full-scale concrete pavement slabs under the traffic of multiple wheel loadings, to correlate this information with that already available for rigid pavement behavior under single sheel load traffic, and to establish or check methods of designing rigid pavements for multiple sheel loadings by airplanes having gross weights of 140,000 pounds and greater. In addition, other findings which appeared to be pertinent to the general problem of rigid pavement design are emphasized and discussed.
