Airport pavements are an essential part of our national transportation infrastructure. They provide the functional and structural capacity to accommodate aircraft movements in a safe and efficient manner. One of the most valuable airport assets is their apron, taxiway, and runway pavements. While all pavements are designed for a reasonable service life, at some point in their life-cycle they will require both maintenance and rehabilitation to continue operating. The longer the life of an airport pavement, the more cost effective the original investment.

All pavements need maintenance and airport pavements are no exception. Regular maintenance is needed to prevent aircraft foreign object damage and rehabilitation is necessary to reduce maintenance needs and to provide a smooth, structurally adequate pavement to accommodate moving aircraft. This course provides a history of airfield pavement design, pavement strength evaluation to establish airport pavement load ratings, pavement condition evaluation, an overview of effective pavement management, key elements of pavement construction and maintenance, pavement preservation plan development, and new and emerging technology for airport pavements.

Learning Objectives

  • Be able to recognize and use current common airport pavement design procedures.
  • Understand common design and construction features important to the performance of airport pavement infrastructure.
  • Understand how to assess the condition of existing pavements and to use this information to determine appropriate maintenance and rehabilitation treatments.
  • To design and recognize specification and construction activities that can improve the performance of pavements.
  • To understand the production and placement of asphalt concrete.
  • Communicate and promote good pavement design and construction practices.

Course Description

This course discusses airport pavement design history, pavement design, specification, subgrade preparation, base/subbase and surface types and function, construction details, and long-term functional and structural performance considerations to ensure a long-life and effective product. It provides details on maintenance and rehabilitation procedures to cost-effectively extend the life of our airport pavement infrastructure.

Unique Features of the Course

While the course materials are structured, there is ample opportunity to explore any aspects of pavement design, evaluation, and maintenance of interest to the participants. The instructor effectively uses discussion, case studies and real-world examples to highlight key aspects and interests of the group.

Target Audience

  • Airfield pavement network owners and administrators;
  • Engineers and technicians involved in the design, evaluation, and management of pavements;
  • Provincial and municipal agencies; and
  • Airport owners and maintenance staff.
