Abstract:
Sealing pavement joints is necessary to minimize seepage of surface water into the subgrade and to prevent pavement damage. Joint seals for airfield pavements assume an additional level of importance since debris that is harbored in these joints can be injested and may damage aircraft engines. The paper briefly reviews a design procedure that has been used by the U.S. Air Force and includes a typical design example.
