RIGID AIRPORT PAVEMENT DESIGN


FAA DESIGN METHOD

FAA DESIGN PROCEDURE


1.

Design Inputs

a.

Concrete flexural strength (90 days)

b.

Modulus of subgrade reaction (k)

c.

Gross weight of design aircraft

d.

Equivalent annual departure of design


aircraft

FAA DESIGN PROCEDURE


2.

Thickness Selection

a.

Separate design curves for single, dual and


dual tandem gear assembly and separate
wide body aircraft.

b.

Design curves indicate thickness of PCC


slab only and this thickness T is the
critical thickness.

FAA DESIGN PROCEDURE


3.

Subbase Requirements

a.

A minimum thickness of 4 inches of

subbase required except as shown in


Table 3-10 conditions where no subbase

is required.

b.

Subbase thickness in excess of 4 inches


can be used to decrease the required

thickness, if economical.
c.

Stabilized subbase is required if aircraft

weighing more than 100,000 lbs is


present in the mix.

Conversions for different gear types

FAA DESIGN PROCEDURE


4.

Subgrade Compaction Requirement

a.

For Cohesive Soils

Must be compacted to 90 % maximum

density for fill (ASTM D 698)

Top 6 inches must be compacted to 90%

maximum density in cut section.

FAA DESIGN PROCEDURE


b.

For Cohesionless Soils

In fill section top 6 inches must be compacted


to 100 % maximum dry density and remainder
95 %.

In cut section Top 6 inches must be compacted


to 100% maximum density and next 18 inches

to 95 %.

FAA DESIGN PROCEDURE


5.

Determination of k

a.

k should be assigned to material directly


beneath concrete slab.

b.

Determine k for subgrade soil and use curve


to improve k values for given subbase material
& thickness Table 2-3

c.

Use Fig. 2-4 to improve k for untreated


subbase.

Effect of subbase on k (well graded crushed aggregate)

Effect of subbase on k (bank-run sand & gravel)

FAA DESIGN PROCEDURE


Use

Fig. 3-16 to improve k for stabilized

subbase

6.

Critical & non-critical areas

Fig. 3-1

a.

Design curves give T, the critical thickness

b.

0.9T thickness for non-critical areas


applicable to concrete slab.

c.

Variable thickness section & thinned edge


section reduction factors (0.7 T) applies to
slab thickness.

FAA DESIGN PROCEDURE


d.

Subbase thickness must be adjusted to


provide continuous drainage at subgrade.

High Traffic Volume

Provide
additional
thickness
for
departures in excess of 25,000 according
to Table 3-5.

Pavement Thickness for Higher


Departure Levels
For annual departures in excess of 25,000 the total
pavement thickness should be increased as shown below:
