Aircraft Concrete Pavement Practice in Australia

Airports Members Only

Rigid aircraft pavements consist of unreinforced, jointed concrete slabs, usually with joint spacings of 5 to 6 metres. Reinforced concrete (with larger joint spacings), continuously reinforced concrete (free of joints) and prestressed concrete are not used in Australia. In the past some pavements were machine-placed (See photo 1) but, with...
