Rapid Reconstruction of Concrete Slabs on Airfield Runways

Paper by NEGRE from ISCR 6th 1990

The rapid reconstruction of concrete slabs on airfield runways is a technology presented to airports operation authorities in order to strictly shorten the reparation period when the runway is unpracticable. The French airports and airbases engineering services proceeded with two demonstration works on the BORDEAUX and NlMES airports. The reconstruction of the 20 cm ana 25 cm thick slabs was performed with fiber concrete and high resistance cement. It lasted less than 4 days, including the subgrade and foundation preparation, and confirmes the skill and know-how of French companies for the realization of these special works.
