Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This study evaluates seven nondestructive testing devices for use on airfield pavemeats. Four falling weight deflectometers and three vibrators were evaluated for accuracy, repeatability , and reliability. Deflection data were collected on 12 pavements consisting of thick and thin asphalt concrete, portland cement concrete, and composite (asphalt concrete over portland cement concrete) pavements over fine and coarse grain subgrades. This report describes the test program, presents results of accuracy and repeatability tests, and presents the deflection data collected on the 12 pavements. Note: This file is very large.
