An airfield pavement investigation was performed in December 1995 at Butts Army Airfield, Fort Carson, Colorado, to develop information pertaining to the structural adequacy of the airfield pavements for continued use under current mission and upgrading of the pavements for mission changes. The pavement surface condition was evaluated by use of the pavement condition index PCI condition survey procedure, and a nondestructive evaluation procedure was used to determine the load-carrying capability of the pavements and overlay requirements for continued use of the pavements under current missions. Results of the evaluation are presented including a a tabulation of the existing pavement features, b the results of the nondestructive tests performed using a falling weight deflectometer, c the PCI and rating of the surface of each pavement feature, d a structural evaluation and overlay requirements for 12,000 passes of the 61 ,236-kg 135,000-lb C-130 aircraft and 50,000 passes of a 22,680-kg 50,000-lb CH-47 aircraft, e the pavement classification number for each pavement facility, and f maintenance and repair recommendations based on the structural evaluation and condition survey.
