Appears on pages(s): 920-925
Keywords: bearing capacity; bond (concrete to concrete) ; concrete pavements; prestressed concrete; repairs; resurfacing; runways; strength; stresses; subgrades; temperature.
Abstract:Load-deflection measurements obtained from full scale plate-bearing tests were analyzed and compared with theoretical calculated values to evaluate the strength of a section of the prestressed concrete runway of Kuwait International Airport. Total length o the runway consisted of 13 such sections, each about 278 m (912.7 ft) 1g. on Results showed that the bearing capacity of the section’s central part was weaker than the required value. A method was established to strengthen the existing pavement with a concrete overlay directly bonde to the prestressed pavement.
