This document is intended to provide the engineer or constructor an understanding of the materials used and the design and construction criteria to apply when specifying stabilized or permeable base courses in airfield rigid pavement structures. The criteria and techniques described herein should result in a pavement system that will provide the owner the expected level of service.
The purpose of this document is to supplement FAA AC 150/5320-5B, FAA AC 150/5320-6D, and FAA AC 150/5370-10B for guidance in designing and constructing a PCC pavement. This Guide does not purport to address the issues of rigid pavement design and construction in totality. Only those aspects of pavement design and construction that interact with the stabilized or permeable base that are critical to minimize the probability of early-age cracking areaddressed here.
The following chapters are included within this document:
