2 2 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, Year Plan Outline Current Status. Areas of Work. Software Development. Non-destructive testing. Materials and construction.

3 3 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Current Status Since publication of the first airport pavement R&D plan in 1993, a comprehensive collection of airport pavement design and evaluation computer programs have been developed. Development of the computer programs was supported by analytical and full-scale test work.

4 4 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Computer Programs Since 1993

5 5 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Ancillary Computer Programs ConvertProfileFormat. Profile32. ProGroove. 10-View. NAPTF test vehicle control.

6 6 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 National Airport Pavement Test Facility CRDA with Boeing, joint funding and test plan development. Working group support and assistance. Primarily used to develop structural failure models for pavement thickness design procedures. Six major construction cycles completed to date.

7 7 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Primary Areas of Work in New 10- Year Plan 1.Pavement design, evaluation, and management software. 2.Life cycle cost analysis. 3.Non-destructive testing. 4.Materials and construction processes. 5.NAPTF. 6.Field testing 7.High Temperature Pavement Test Facility.

8 8 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Area 1. Software Except for PAVEAIR, and a couple of others, the existing programs are considered to be technically mature. All require normal maintenance and adjustment to new pavement and computer technologies. Most require updating to the latest programming environments and operating systems. Integration of the programs and data structures is required. Web-based interoperability would be nice.

9 9 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Relationship Between Main Programs

10 10 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Software Structures We are committed to further development and maintenance of computer program applications. PAVEAIR is considered to be the hub application and should be the depository of almost all data required by the other programs. Current thinking is that the satellite programs should remain as individual applications linked to PAVEAIR by specialized services or other data pathways.

11 11 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Software Structures (continued) All programs, including PAVEAIR, should be capable of being run stand- alone on individual personal computers. All programs should be capable of communicating with PAVEAIR over the internet.

12 12 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Software Structures (continued) Different levels of integration. FAARFIELD, COMFAA, and BAKFAA should share pavement structures. FAARFIELD and COMFAA should share aircraft mixes. ProFAA should probably be almost completely independent, unless profiles are stored by PAVEAIR.

13 13 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Software Development Models All programs except PAVEAIR were developed in VB 6.0. VB 6.0 is no longer supported by Microsoft and all programs must be translated into.NET applications, including all ancillary programs. Windows 7 should be the target operating system. The future of Windows 8 is not clear.

14 14 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Software Development Models PAVEAIR is an ASPX web application and will remain so. FAARFIELD and BAKFAA have been translated from VB 6.0 into VB.NET Windows Forms applications. ProFAA is being translated from VB 6.0 into a VB.NET Windows Presentation Foundation application.

15 15 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Windows Forms Windows Forms is the traditional Microsoft Windows software model. It might not be developed significantly beyond its current state. It is strictly a single computer software model. Communication over the internet is difficult (consider the 1-Click distribution model).

16 16 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Windows Presentation Foundation Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is an alternative Windows software model with potential to displace Windows Forms for single computer use and allow a path to conversion to web-based applications. Features of WPF distinct from Forms are:

17 17 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Features of WPF distinct from Windows Forms User interface and application code bases are almost completely separate (XAML versus VB). Automatic component resizing is built in. Can be compiled as a browser plug-in with reduced functionality. Can be translated to a Microsoft Silverlight application with reduced functionality with manageable effort.

18 18 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Microsoft Silverlight Silverlight is Microsofts version of Adobe Flash. Can be compiled as a true single computer application or a true web- based application (plug-in) by changing only a couple of lines of code. Need to decide which model to use very soon.

19 19 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) Over 100 pages in AC 150/5320-6E. –4 ½ pages are devoted to LCCA. 300 pages in AIP Handbook, Order C. –1 page is devoted to LCCA methodology. This is not enough to provide guidance when jobs are bid based on LCCA.

20 20 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Life Cycle Cost Analysis (continued) Modify the AAPTP AirCost Excel application to communicate with PAVEAIR. Run cost analyses and determine the data requirements to begin defining standard procedures for airport pavement LCCA. This will require expert help from engineering economist consultants.

21 21 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Non-Destructive Testing After software development, non- destructive testing is seen as the next most important work area. The objective will be to improve the predictive capability of PAVEAIR.

22 22 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Improve the Efficiency of Pavement Condition Surveys for More Frequent and More Comprehensive Inputs Automated equipment for data collection. –Crack surveys. –Roughness profile measurement. –HWD, RWD, GPR.

23 23 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Pavement Working Group – 10-Year Plan April 25, 2012 Improve the Efficiency of Pavement Condition Surveys for More Frequent and More Comprehensive Inputs Automated software applications for data processing. –Crack detection. –Crack characterization. –PCI from crack surveys. –ProFAA. –PCN and load evaluation. –Groove measurement and evaluation.
