Airfield pavement design is typically more complex than highway pavement design. Airfields must support the large load requirements of aircraft and aircraft components, while minimizing damage to aircraft due to excessive deformation upon landing or takeoff.
Airfield pavements must be designed to channel drainage water away, protect against standing water, and minimize the risk of foreign object damage. Additionally, airfields must be designed with materials that provide additional skid resistance, as well as improved noise reduction.
