Abstract : An evaluation of the pavements at U. S. Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and U. S. Naval Outlying Field Coupeville, Washington 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, design pavement sections, climatic data, current aircraft traffic, and pavement and subsurface materials. Results of the evaluation show that asphaltic concrete Taxiway B and all portland cement concrete pavements with thicknesses of less than 8 inches, including the pavement at NOLF Coupeville, are being overloaded by some aircraft currently operating at the air station.
