Abstract : The evaluation of the pavement at the U. S. Naval Air Facility, El Centro, California, is presented with the allowable gross load capacities of the runways, taxiways, and parking aprons for single, dual, single-tandem, and dual-tandem wheel assembly aircraft. Information is also included on the construction history, climatic data, and current aircraft traffic. Results of the field and laboratory tests on the pavements and subsurface materials are included in the tables. Results of the evaluation show that many of the pavements are being overloaded by current aircraft operating at the air facility. (Author)
