Abstract:

Comparative performance analyses of full-scale pavement test sections indicated that reductions in conventional flexible and rigid pavement thickness requirements are warranted when high-quality stabilized layers are incorporated in the pavement structure. Based on the findings in the analyses, design procedures for airport pavement systems incorporating certain types of stabilized layers were developed. Construction procedures for stabilized layers were developed based on field operations. This volume of the report summarizes pertinent data from the test sections, describes the analyses, and presents the design and construction procedures. Volume I of the report describes in detail the design, construction, and behavior under traffic of test sections specially designed for this study. Volume III describes analysis of membrane-encapsulated soil layers MESL and presents design and construction procedures for airport pavements incorporating MESL. Volume IV describes the performance and analysis of insulating layers in pavement test sections.
