Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers supports the U.S. Army through the design, construction, evaluation. and rehabilitation of Army airfield pavements. In terms of evaluation. the Corps of Engineers conducts structural evaluations and performs visual condition surveys to assess the condition of the Army's airfield pavements. Currently, the Corps of Engineers only reports the surveyed condition of the Army airfield pavements, and makes no attempt to predict the future condition of these pavements. In the research presented herein, a distress density growth model was developed and recommended for use in predicting the performance of Army airfield pavements. This model can be used to help predict when the condition of Army airfield pavements will reach a level that requires the expenditure of funds to improve thetr condition. The results of this research indicate that environmental distresses are more prevalent than structural distresses on Army airfield pavements. Note: This file is large.
