Abstract:

Instrumented aircraft were used to apply static and dynamic loads to instrumented pavement structures both flexible and rigid at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center NAFEC, Atlantic City, N. J. Volume I of this report describes the testing program and instrumentation systems. Volume II with Appendixes A and B presents the reduction and analysis of data and the test results. This volume contains a compendium of the entire study. Measurements of displacement, velocity, pressure and temperature were made in the two pavement structures. Two phases of material behavior, elastic and inelastic, in both flexible and rigid pavement structures were identified. Each phase had to be treated independently for a full analysis of the static and dynamic load test results.
