In October 1990, the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES was requested by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Southern Division, Charleston, South Carolina, to provide technical assistance in analyzing the airfield pavement distresses at Jacksonville Naval Air Station in Florida. Runways 927 and 1432 had been rehabilitated and resurfaced with asphalt concrete in 1988. Within 1 year, significant amounts of loose fine aggregate appeared on the pavement surface. The asphalt concrete had begun to prematurely deteriorate and exhibit pavement surface distresses. The primary surface distresses were an open-textured surface, raveling, and the evidence of roots in the asphalt concrete.
