Advanced Design of Flexible Aircraft Pavements The design of aircraft landing gears comprising various configurations of wheels affects aircraft cost efficiency as measured by the cost per passenger-kilometre, but also influences the amount of accumulated damage caused to the world’s aircraft pavements. Higher tyre pressures, fewer
desire in the United States to optimize the use of materials currently used for highway pavement construction and to seek advanced materials that are cheaper, better performing, and less damaging to the environment. NEEDS FOR ADVANCED HIGH-PERFORMANCE MATERIALS The needs for seeking advanced highway construction materials include:
concrete pavement structural design procedure. In 1926, Westergaard developed a method for computing the response of rigid pavement slabs-on-grade subjected to wh eel loads by modeling the pavement as a thin, infinite or semi-infinite plate resting on a bed of springs (Westergaard 1926).
Best Practices in Pavement Design for Design-Build Projects The purpose of this TRS is to serve as a synthesis of pertinent completed research to be used for further study and evaluation by MnDOT. This TRS does not represent the conclusions of either CTC & Associates or MnDOT. Introduction
Transportation Engineering. The course covers three key areas of pavement engineering, namely pavement design, rehabilitation investigation/design and asphalt technology. The first part of the course is designed to provide the participant with a sound understanding of pavement materials, test methods, pavement behaviors and design. Such an
