Abstract: The U.S. military must have the ability to rapidly deploy troops and equipment anywhere in the world as part of a contingency operation. Recent military operations have highlighted the critical need for rapid repair procedures and materials for military use on sub-standard, in-theater airfields. The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center is currently addressing these problems through a 6-year demonstration-based research and development program called JRAC (Joint Rapid Airfield Construction). This study involves the development of a method using rapid setting grouts and recycled concrete pavement (RCP) to repair portland cement concrete pavements. A laboratory study was conducted to evaluate material properties in order to gain an understanding of expected field performance. Eight full-scale repairs were constructed using two rapid setting grouts, two types of equipment, and two concrete slabs. The repairs were successfully trafficked with simulated C-17 aircraft wheel loads to verify the structural capacity and, ultimately, the procedures.
