pavement require special attention to design. Abatech has been
involved in many pavement investigations and other aspects of pavement
design. Typical projects are given below:
Lauderdale Airport, FL - Design of modified asphalt pavement for heavy
loading on behalf of supplier of modified asphalt materials with a
value engineering proposal for use of novel materials.
Airport, Kazakhstan - assessment of climatic conditions at location
and advice for selection of PG graded binders.
International Airport - detailed evaluation of airport runway
structure and taxiways for design build proposal. Testing
included FWD, dynamic cone penetrometer, and other soils
testing. Detailed recommendations made for pavement rehabilitation.
International Airport, United Kingdom - analysis of early failure with
grouted macadam pavement. Analysis included assessment of ground
penetrating radar (GPR) of various data collected for turning circle
at the end of the runway to identify voiding in pavement structure.
International Airport - detailed analysis of binder and mixture rheology
to enable assessment of binder properties on early life cracking
observed on runway structure.
Alamos Airport, New Mexico - design of asphalt materials and
construction quality control of asphalt materials placed around
extension of parking areas for planes and light aircraft.
Airport, Florida - advice on sealant materials and assessment of
similar materials that had experienced early life cracking.
