Airfield Maintenance & Repair: A Decision-Maker's Guide
Hawn, Erik J.
MetadataShow full item record
Pavement is simple enough: groom some dirt, put down a layer or two of concrete or asphalt and open for traffic. The deceptive simplicity of airfield pavement is filled with a plethora of latent complexities - challenges airfield managers and engineers are expected to master. Truly effective pavement maintenance is an advanced skill, at the very least. Since many of the nation's military and commercial airfields have already been built, this aptitude for pavement upkeep is a growth industry that is increasing in demand. Furthermore, rapidly advancing technology in both aircraft and pavements, as well as shrinking fund allocation for airfield maintenance is adding to the complexity of the field. Increasing operational and environmental restrictions also contribute to the intricacy of effective pavement maintenance and repair by limiting available options to complete required upkeep.
