Part of: Airport Pavement Innovations—Theory to Practice


Asphalt is generally used as the surfacing for flexible airport pavements with airline passenger jet aircraft. In Australia and its neighbouring territories, surface treatments (seals) have been used for many years in remote areas, and for aircraft up to Boeing 767 in size. The suitability of surface treatments; their design, construction and maintenance; and their cost effectiveness are discussed within a framework of practical application.
