Abstract : The evaluation of the pavement at the U. S. Naval Air Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba 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. Results of the evaluation of McCalla Hill Field show that the runway and taxiways are not being overloaded by aircraft using the field. The six inch thick portion of the portland cement concrete Parking Apron is being overloaded by C54's operating at maximum gross weight. The evaluation of Leeward Point Field shows that the runway, taxiways, and Parking Apron 1 are slightly overloaded by C124 and C141 aircraft operating at maximum gross weight. Parking Apron 2 is overloaded by most aircraft using the station. A visual survey of the pavements at the station show that pavement conditions at McCalla Hill Field range from very poor to excellent and at Leeward Point Field from poor to excellent. (Author)
