Abstract: During the period August to November 2008, airfield pavement drainage layers at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, and Fort Bliss, Texas, were observed for the purpose of evaluating their efficiency and determining if long-term performance justifies the additional cost of installation. Evaluation procedures included the artificial introduction of water into the pavement structure and observation of flow. Pavement performance data were also analyzed. Data from each field testing location were used to determine the effectiveness of the drainage layer. These data were used to provide recommendations for future use of pavement drainage layers on airfields.
