Abstract:

Results of flexural strength, CBR, and plate bearing tests, moisture and density determinations, mechanical analyses, and Atterberg limits tests conducted on the pavements, bases, and subgrades of the various landing facilities at Perrin Air Force Base, Sherman, Texas are used in this report to evaluate the load-carrying capacity of the pavements with respect to various landing-gear assemblies and operational-life categories. The analysis of these test results indicate the over-all field evaluation to be governed by the load-carrying capacity of the N-S taxiway, which is the weakest facility essential to operation of the field.
