Abstract:

This report covers a literature search and review to obtain information on geotextile applications related to pavement construction. Applicable information from this study, if sufficient, would then be used to prepare guidelines on design application, material specifications, performance criteria, and construction procedures for improving subgrade support with geotextiles in general aviation airport pavements. The study revealed that there are numerous design procedures available for using geotextiles in aggregate surfaced payments and flexible pavement road construction. However, there is no generally accepted procedure for either type construction. The state-of-the-art has not advanced to the point where design procedures for using geotextiles in paved airport construction are available. Keywords Geotextile, Pavement, Separation, Runways, Airports, Reinforcement, Subgrade.
