Rapid Construction of Rigid (Portland Cement Concrete) Airfield Pavements
Provides guidance for the planning, coordination, management, design, testing, inspection, and execution of rapid construction of rigid (Portland Cement Concrete) airfield pavements. This AC focuses on rigid airfield pavement construction. The material contained herein also applies to other types of airfield improvements where rapid construction is identified as the preferred construction method.
Guidelines and Procedures for Maintenance of Airport Pavements
Provides guidelines and procedures for maintaining rigid and flexible airport pavements.
Because of the size of this document, it is available as one large file (see Complete) or as several smaller files (see Parts 1-3).
