The U. S. Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory's research effort in the area of airfield pavements is described. Specifically, the concern is with the factors that influence the modulus of deformation (elasticity) of paving materials. It is shown that this parameter is influenced by the weight of the overlying bases in a pavement system. It is also demonstrated that this parameter increases with increasing depth of base and that bases incorporated in a multilayered system develop higher moduli than those that are part of a two-layered system.
