About the research
The purpose of the Airport Concrete Pavement Technology Program is to foster continued improvements in concrete pavement technologies by preserving, rehabilitating, and enhancing the existing system. The intent is to ensure that through these efforts concrete pavement will continue to meet evolving airport needs.
The project is a cooperative effort between the National CP Tech Center and the Federal Aviation Association to advance multiple focus areas involving concrete pavements and associated concrete materials. The focus of this effort is not on inventing the next “big thing,” but rather in advancing 21st century solutions for concrete pavement design, construction, and materials deemed important to airfield reliability, efficiency, and safety with the overarching goal to keep America moving forward.
