Abstract:Paper presents the U.S. Navy's experience with the performance of steel fiber reinforced concrete airfield pavements and techniques evaluated to alleviate the problem of exposed surface steel fibers. The exposed surface steel fibers posed a potential foreign object damage hazard to jet engines and injury hazard to ground support personnel. The Navy has elected to use the standard Navy PCC slab size (12.5 x 15 ft) and thickness for SFRC pavements because of slab curling and corner cracking problems on SFRC pavements. The diamond blade bump grinding technique is preferred for removing surface steel fibers because of its cost and life expectancy.
