Abstract : The purpose of the subsurface drainage investigation is to develop design criteria for the drainage of airfield base courses and subgrades with the object of establishing satisfactory design standards for inclusion in the Engineering Manual. The purpose of this report is to summarize and correlate the theoretical studies, laboratory model tests, test results from four full scale field test sections and the data obtained from existing airfield drainage installations during the fiscal year 1945-1946 and to present design criteria determined therefrom.
