Abstract: A new paving process known as resin modified pavement (RMP) was used in the airfield repair project at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The RMP is a composite paving material that combines the flexible characteristics of an asphalt concrete pavement with the durability of a portland cement concrete pavement. This paving process was developed by by the French construction company Jean Lefebvre as a cost-effective alternative to portland cement concrete. The RMP is best suited for pavements that are subjected to abrasive traffic, heavy static loads, excessive fuel spillage, and channelized traffic. The RMP process was constructed at Fort Campbell Army Airfield in September 1992. The U.S. Army Engineer District, Louisville, was responsible for the design and construction of the airfield project. The Pavement Systems Division of the Geotechnical Laboratory at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station was requested to provide technical assistance in preparing the RMP mix designs and onsite assistance during construction of the test section and the airfield pavement. This report discusses in detail the laboratory evaluations for the open-graded asphalt mixture, cement slurry grout mix designs, and construction of the RMP test section and a warm-up apron (hardstand) at the east end of Runway 04-22. The RMP warm-up apron was successfully constructed and has been opened for traffic since October 1992.
