Abstract:

The evaluation of pavement at the U. S. Naval Air Facility, China Lake, California, 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 runways, taxiways, and aprons are capable of withstanding the loads imposed by current aircraft with the exception of the south end of Taxiway 14-32 and the old portland cement concrete in Parking Aprons 1, 2, and 3.
