Abstract : A condition survey of McCoy Air Force Base, Orlando, Fla., was included in the long-range study of the effects of channelized traffic on the various elements of flexible pavements because channelized traffic had occurred at this field, and distress was apparent on taxiway 5 and the east N-S runway. The surfaces of all facilities were inspected with special emphasis on the distressed runway and taxiway. Field testing and sampling were performed in test pits at five locations on taxiway 5 and seven locations on the east N-S runway in or adjacent to distressed areas. Samples of the pavement, base, subbase, and subgrade were also tested in the laboratory. (Author Modified Abstract)
