Abstract:

The behavior of unsurfaced runways under aircraft movement has been studied for a number of decades. A good number of the design nomograms developed have been intended for the prediction of runway performance in a variety of soils and under diverse loading conditions. At the same time, a comparison of the design values with the actual behavior of the runways in the field, indicates a very large scatter of the results.
