Abstract:

The Systems Research and Development Service of the FAA is conducting a research program for upgrading airport pavement technology by a coordinated contractorin-houseindustry effort. Three areas of action are design criteria, materials and construction, and test and evaluation. By the end of CY 1973 most of the current design, field test and evaluation efforts based on existing design technology will be completed and results of the study will be handed off to Airports Service for implementation by the regional authorities. To a great extent this information will supplement our existing technology which was derived from extrapolation of military and highway flexible and rigid pavement designs and post-World War 2 experience.
