Synthesis: state of the art for ultra high performance concrete in airfield pavement

Compilation of case studies and lab research door concrete that reaches 30,000 psi compressive, 4,000 psi flexural strength. Allow Airport industry to benefit from lessons learned in highway applications. Look at rapid placement, plastic failure mode instead of rigid, lower cost, thinner overall pavement section due to ability to spread loads to a wider subgrade area, possible reduced labor and equipment cost and potential for more widely spaced joints. Summarize highway and overseas projects for these factors.

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

New aircraft challenge the life cycle cost, durability and ability of traditional pavement materials to meet aircraft loads cost effectively and to provide adequate service life.

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