Abstract:

This state-of-the-art report reviews the climatic parameters important to airport pavement design, the methodology by which climatic parameters are used to predict pavement design parameters, and the methodology by which climatic parameters are incorporated into design procedures. Methods for predicting temperature and moisture conditions in the pavement system are discussed. Also the pavement distresses which result from temperature and moisture effects are reviewed. The report includes a comprehensive discussion of the methodology for assessing the influence of climatic parameters on the properties of the airport pavement materials. Probabilistic procedures for evaluating the influence of climate on pavement systems are described. In conclusion, a brief summary of methodologies which could be used to include climatic parameters in airport pavement design is presented. Author
