Performance of Airport PCC Pavements During Spring Thaw Periods
The portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements at two Wisconsin airports, Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee, and Outagamie County Airport in Appleton, were monitored during spring thaw...

Prediction of Airfield Pavement Responses Using Transfer Functions
A methodology is presented which will aid in the evaluation and maintenance of airfield pavements. Predictions of an airfield pavement's behavior to multiple types and magnitudes...

An Airfield Pavement Consultant System (AIRPACS) for Rehabilitation of Concrete Pavements
Airfield pavement knowledge captured by this research showed that knowledge-based techniques can be used to quickly select and design rehabilitation alternatives for a runway, taxiway...

Automating Airfield Condition Data Collection
This paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the newest technology for the data collection requirements of an airport interested in implementing a pavement management system....

ACN-PCN Concepts for Airport Pavement Management
The aircraft classification number-pavement classification number (ACN-PCN) method is the standardized International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) method for reporting airport pavement...

Aircraft/Pavement Interaction
An Integrated System
This proceedings, Aircraft/Pavement Interaction—An Integrated System, consists of papers presented at the specialty conference held in Kansas...

DFW Pavement Management System Implementation
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is implementing a comprehensive pavement management program to assist them in identifying and prioritizing maintenance, rehabilitation and reconstruction...

Concrete Mixture Evaluation and Acceptance for Air Field Pavements
Evaluation of the strength of portland cement concrete using flexural strength and compressive strength tests is examined. Problems with the use of flexural testing in the field are discussed...

Aircraft Flexible Pavement Design in Australia
After World War Two, aircraft pavement design practice in Australia was largely developed from the work done by the U.S. Corps of Engineers. The C.B.R. pavement design method now differs...

Landing on Frictionless Surfaces
Who in his right mind would deliberately land an airplane on a frictionless surface? Unfortunately, professional pilots occasionally encounter situations where the friction between rubber...

Pavement Image Processing Using Neural Networks
This paper discusses the potential for employing neural network models in the pavement image interpretation and classification stage of an automated pavement condition evaluation system....

A Design for Automated Pavement Crack Sealing
An automated crack sealing system can have substantial economic benefits including reduced labor costs, improved quality, and improved safety. While automating crack sealing is technically...

Potholes East Canal Headworks Project
The construction of 6.5 MW Potholes East Canal Headworks in Washington required near vertical excavation of about 100 ft (30 m) through the existing earthfill dam founded on columnar basalt....

Database Organization for Airfield Pavement Management

A PC-Based Geographically Referenced Pavement Management Information System
Infrastructure management is one of nine general types of applications of geographic information systems (GIS) technology. Our Federal, state and local road networks represent a massive...

A Hypertext Database for Asphalt Paving

Probabilistic and Reliability Analysis of Asphalt Concrete Airfield Pavements
A procedure was developed to analyze layered elastic asphaltic concrete airfield pavement systems in terms of probability and reliability. Rosenblueth method is used to estimate the expected...

On the Dynamic Response of Bridges by Oscillating Vehicles on Rough Surfaces
The spectral theory is applied to the response of bridges under a Poissonian stream of vehicles moving with constant speed over the bridge. The vehicles are modeled as oscillators with...
