newCOMFAA 3.0

COMFAA 3.0 accompanies Advisory Circular AC 150/5335-5C, “Standardized Method of Reporting Airport Pavement Strength – PCN,” and is designed to work with the COMFAA 3.0 support spreadsheet. The current version is dated August 14, 2014. COMFAA 3.0 differs from the previous version, COMFAA 2.0, in that external file manipulation is fully supported and the procedure for computing flexible and rigid pavement PCNs, as described in AC 150/5335-5C, is fully automated. The procedure for computing PCNs requires only that the user enter the aircraft traffic mix, pavement foundation strength, pavement thickness, and (for rigid pavements) the concrete strength. See the advisory circular for more information on using COMFAA 3.0.

newICAO-ACN 1.0

ICAO-ACN calculates ICAO aircraft classification numbers (ACN) for aircraft operating on flexible and rigid airport pavements. The flexible pavement ACNs are calculated using the CBR method of thickness design at standard CBR values of 15, 10, 6 and 3.  Alpha factors follow the revised schedule of alpha factors adopted by ICAO in a State Letter dated October 16, 2007. The rigid pavement ACNs are calculated using the PCA method thickness design at standard k-values of 150.0, 80.0, 40.0 and 20.0 MN/m3.  ICAO-ACN 1.0 is based on the computer program COMFAA 3.0 that accompanies AC 150/5335-5C, “Standardized Method of Reporting Pavement Strength – PCN.” However, ICAO-ACN 1.0 is not an official FAA or ICAO standard at this time.

new.gif This document is a critical review of three recent reports detailing research on the appropriate level of design gyrations to use when preparing hot mix asphalt (HMA) mix designs for airfield pavements using the gyratory compactor. Research performed at the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers Engineering Research and Development Center (ERDC) recommended using 70 gyrations when designing HMA for airfield pavements using the gyratory compactor. The results from research using a similar approach, sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and performed by SRA International, Inc. (SRA) and several other contractors, concurred that 70 gyrations was an appropriate compaction level. This research also found that HMA designed using 75-blow Marshall compaction and 70 gyrations exhibited similar levels of rut resistance and fatigue resistance when evaluated in laboratory tests. A third study, Airfield Asphalt Pavement Technology Program (AAPTP) Project 04-03, also examined the issue of using gyratory compaction to design HMA for airfield pavements. In this project, it was recommended that design gyrations should increase with increasing tire pressure. For example, the AAPTP 04-03 report recommended that, for HMA subject to aircraft tire pressures in excess of 200 lb/in2, 80 gyrations should be used in preparing specimens during the mix design process. Although the concept of linking design gyrations to aircraft tire pressure has merit, the performance test used in developing these recommendations was not calibrated to actual pavement performance. Therefore, it is recommended that 70 gyrations be used in preparing mix designs for HMA for airfield pavements, in accordance with the ERDC and FAA/SRA reports.

new.gif Snow, ice, and slush pavement conditions significantly impact aircraft landing, takeoff, and ground operational safety. Snow removal operations, involving plowing and chemical treatment, are costly to airport operators and result in delays to the traveling public. This report presents an alternative approach that combines photovoltaic energy with conductive concrete to develop an anti-icing airfield pavement to prevent snow/ice accumulation. This approach maintains the concrete slab surface at an above-freezing temperature using direct current energy supplied by a photovoltaic and battery system. To test this approach, the University of Arkansas Engineering Research Center constructed a series of conductive concrete overlay test sections. The thermal mass properties of concrete were used in this work to minimize energy demands. Energy was continually supplied to the concrete mass to maintain a uniform temperature and, therefore, to negate the need of an energy surge to remove snow.

Although the conductive concrete test sections showed some heat gain from the photovoltaic energy system, the overall heat gain was not sufficient to ensure reliable snow-melting capabilities during cold and windy conditions. Additionally, the costs for additional photovoltaic cells and batteries necessary to supply the energy needed for the system would result in poor cost-to-benefit ratios.

new.gif The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) adopted FAA Rigid and Flexible Iterative Elastic Layered Design
(FAARFIELD) as its standard thickness design procedure for airport pavements in September 2009. FAARFIELD incorporates
the effects of airplane wander through a computed pass-to-coverage (P/C) ratio. The P/C ratio is computed at the top of the
subgrade for flexible pavements and at the pavement surface for rigid pavements. This document describes the FAARFIELDimplemented
procedure that allows the computation of P/C ratio for arbitrary gear configurations. This procedure also allows the
calculation of pavement thicknesses for arbitrary, user-defined gear configurations. This feature was not available in previous
FAARFIELD versions.

Published Proceeding of the Third ICPT Conference, Beijing, China, April 1998, Volume 2

Surface elevation profiles are measured before and after overlay operations on runways at two commercial airports in the USA.Each airport had only one runway. All overlaying was done at night, with the airports opened for normal operations during the day. The profiles were measured with an inertial profiler having software compensation for accelerometer errors. Pavement surface elevations measured with normal surveying rod and level equipment are compared with the profiler elevation measurements for one of the runways.
