Abstract:

With the advent of jumbo-jet aircraft, as represented by the Lockheed C-5A Galaxy and the Boeing 747, one is faced with supporting three-quarter million pound and larger aircraft on pavement facilities. To provide information on pavement behavior, test sections of both flexible and rigid pavement have been constructed and are being tested to failure under the full prototype loading of one 12-wheel main landing gear of the C-5A aircraft.
