Abstract : Aircraft traffic parameters, natural environment, and asphaltic concrete pavement properties and defect density values for 11 Naval and Marine Corps airfields were compiled for preliminary statistical analyses. The purpose of the analyses which involved correlation and regression was to determine what traffic, environment, and pavement factors were significantly associated with the various defects. Results of the analyses indicated that most of the factors are not significantly associated with pavement defects. Many of the factors appeared to be related to pavement defects in a manner opposite to what is considered logical from a physical or engineering standpoint. (Modified author abstract)
