Paper Abstract

The U.S. Air Force has over 100 airfields located in various climates around the world. Many of the pavements at these bases are nearing the end of or have exceeded their design life. The Air Force implemented a pavements management program, primarily using the falling weight or heavy weight system to insure the pavements are properly maintained and can support existing and projected missions. The management system includes structural evaluations, friction characteristics testing, conditions surveys and MICRO-PAVER, a computerized program to manage the pavements. This paper only discusses structural evaluations.
