Abstract: Airports for light aircraft must often be built in areas where base course material is inadequate or economically unavailable . Sand grids may pr ovide an economical solution in these cases. Previous work with sand grids has identified optimum grid-cell geometry based on ultimate bearing capacity. Past observations also suggest the nature of sand-grid behavior for small stresses and strains. From these, a model was formulated for analyzing the performance of sand grids in pavement systems and spot-checked using field data from a full-scale, accelerated-traffic sand-grid test section.
