Abstract:

A literature review was conducted to determine soil and rock types in various European and Middle Eastern countries, and the results are shown in Appendix A of this report. A study was conducted to evaluate the performance of selected materials when used for constructing contingency-type runways for limited operations of F-4C aircraft. A test section consisting of four items was constructed on a prepared lean clay subgrade with a rated CBR of 10 with thickness of base courses over the subgrade determined from present criteria and a sod surface over all items.
