Abstract:

The purpose of this interim document is to provide documentation of airfield damage recovery ADR techniques within the 18th Engineer Brigade in Europe. This information can be used by the researcher and troop user alike to provide the repair of craters necessary to restore an airfields horizontal construction to operational capability. The long-range purpose is to develop improved systems allowing a field commander to respond to various levels of hostility with a minimum of manpower, time, and cost. Current information within the state of the art of ADR can be used by units in the field for planning, estimating needed materials, organizing, and then accomplishing war damage repair missions to airfield pavements. The methods, materials, and techniques presented are those currently available for war-damaged airfield runways, taxiways, aprons, and roadways.
