Evaluate the Impact of Concrete Material Properties, Joint Type and Support Condition on Airport Pavement Design

The goal of the first phase of the proposed study is to: (1) Determine the sensitivity of LTE (S) to airplane configurations, base properties, joint stiffness, and concrete elastic modulus using FEAFAA, (2) Determine the impact of LTE and Modulus of Elasticity on pavement design thickness, as calculated by FAARFIELD, (3) Perform finite element modeling with ABAQUS to address the discrepancies noted between LTE (S) under static and dynamic conditions by including the damping effects at the joints.
