A Methodology for the Evaluation of Runway Roughness for Repair

The Structural Integrity Branch has supported the evaluation of aircraft response to ground induced loadings through modeling since the 1970s. This report presents a methodology for the use of these modeling techniques to evaluate a runway for roughness, and rate the prospective repairs by effectiveness. This information can be used by local civil engineering to determine the extent of repairs required, and if these repairs can be accomplished under general maintenance funds allocations, or if a major construction request is necessary.
