Use Of Various Types Of Pavements
Flexible Pavement Use
HMA. HMA flexible pavement is the preferred pavement.
Flexible Pavement with Stabilized Layers. Stabilized layers can be
used in flexible pavement when economically justified. Approval of the Air Force major
command (MAJCOM) is required for use of stabilized components on Air Force airfield
pavements (UFC 3-260-02).
All-Bituminous Pavement. All-bituminous pavement can be used as an
optional design based on economical analysis. USACE-TSC or Air Force MAJCOM
approval is required for use on Army and Air Force airfields (UFC 3-260-02).
Asphalt Surface Treatment. Double asphalt surface treatment is used on
Army and Air Force runway overrun areas beyond 150 ft from the end of the runway
pavement (UFC 3-260-02).
Slurry Seal. Slurry seals are not permitted on military airfields
Aggregate Surface. Aggregate surfaced pavement can be used for Air
Force helicopter slide areas and heliports (UFC 3-260-02).
Resin Modified Pavement. Prior approval is required from USACE-TSC,
Air Force MAJCOM, or Navy EFD Facility Engineer Command (FEC) before using any
resin modified pavement.
