This paper presents flexible pavement thickness design requirements for representative aircraft which tend to control the design of flexible pavements at today's and tomorrow's major commercial airports. These design criteria, developed in accordance with the CBR design procedures used by the Army Corps of Engineers in designing flexible pavements for military aircraft, may be used to predict the effects of tomorrow's aircraft on existing flexible pavements at commercial airports.
