Abstract: Nondestructive testing of an asphalt overlay of a crosswind runway at Kansas City International Airport not only reduced construction costs and runway downtime, but proved that only the first half of a planned two stage project was necessary. The design, construction, testing and evaluation procedures are described. A summary of the economic analysis and testing costs of the process are also described.
