Abstract: The purpose of this report is to present the results of a condition survey performed at K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base (KISAFB), Michigan, during 24-25 April 1972. The following three major areas of interest were considered in this condition survey: (A.) The structural condition of the primary airfield pavements. (B.) The condition of pavement repairs and the types of maintenance materials that have been used at this airfield. (C.) Any detrimental effects of frost to the pavement facilities. This report is limited to a presentation of visual observations of the pavement conditions, discussion of these observations, and pertinent remarks with regard to the performance of the pavements. No physical tests of the pavements, foundations, or patching materials were performed during this survey. Heave gages and thermocouples had been installed in two instrumented slabs in the apron area at KISAFB a number of years ago by the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory. During this survey, these slabs were to have been located, and the condition of the instruments was to have been determined. However, it was not possible to locate the instrumented slabs due to the large blanket of snow on the area. The Base Civil Engineering Office at KISAFB plans to obtain information on the condition of these instruments when the area is clear of snow.
