Design and Construction of Airport Service Road Pavements for Non-Conventional Load Configurations

Practical Guidance for Designing and Constructing Airport Service Road Pavements for Non-Conventional Load Configurations

Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)

The design methodology and construction practices are very well established, either for airfield or road pavements, and research efforts are always addressed to improve these aspects. On the other hand, the access or service roads, at the airside, do not receive the same level of attention. They are subjected to fewer numbers of load repetitions and they are exposed to light and/or very heavy vehicles, sometimes, with non-conventional load configurations. Furthermore, the available methods for designing and constructing these types of pavements need to be customized.

Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)
