2 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Why the Interest in Pavement Preservation? Airport Pavements- a Huge Investment Important to Preserve Investment Effective Pavement Preservation Program: Right Pavement Right Treatment Right Time

3 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Pavement Condition Vs Time Time (Years) Pavement Condition Good Poor $1 here... or $4-10 here?

4 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Traditional Approach Allows deterioration to fair to poor conditions Major rehabilitation or reconstruction required Clearly reactive, time consuming and costly

5 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Proactive Approach Applies low-cost preventive treatments 5 to 7 year life Timing is critical Good Condition No structural damage

6 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility ACRP Synthesis Project Synthesis = state-of-the-art practice Project Common Airport Pavement Maintenance Practices: Overview of current maintenance practices Use of PMS to schedule and budget M & R Catalog of preservation treatments

9 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Main Components of Airport Pavement Management

10 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility The Survey Says… Survey- of State Aviation Agencies: 84% agencies using APMS Noted increase in condition over time 2009 Survey- 50 Individual Airports 60% operate APMS 23% developing an APMS 17% do not have APMS

11 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Age Distribution of APMS’s

12 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Satisfaction Level with APMS

13 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 1- Design of APMS Management Considerations: Decide who will operate Budget for operation Integration into decision making Support by upper management

14 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 1- Design of APMS Technical Aspects: Select APMS software Establish database Select methodologies:  Pavement condition evaluation  Forecasting future conditions  M&R selection & prioritization

15 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 2- Pavement Inventory & Evaluation Inventory= basic building block of APMS Sectioning of network Homogeneous units Similar pavement structure & condition Basic unit for decision making (repair unit)

18 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 2- Pavement Inventory & Evaluation Inventory information for each section: Pavement structure M&R history Pavement condition Traffic data

19 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 2- Pavement Inventory & Evaluation Pavement Condition Data Surface Distress (PCI Method) Roughness Friction

20 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Excellent PCI Rating Failed Very Good Good Fair Poor Very Poor Distress Type PCI Distress Quantity Distress Severity Sample Units PCI Method

22 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 2- Pavement Inventory & Evaluation Condition Evaluations: Assess overall network condition Trends in condition Documentation of PMS benefits Documentation of funding needs Technical analysis of pavement performance

23 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Graphical Displays Help Convey Results  Current PCI By Section

24 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Example of a graphical display of PCI PCI Trends By Facility Graphical Displays Help Convey Results

25 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Evaluation for Preventive Maintenance PM should be applied when most cost-effective Condition surveys ideally done annually Survey- avg frequency of PCI survey = 3 yrs Ideal time for crack filling Past ideal time

26 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Performance Prediction Typical planning period = 5 yrs Need to predict future conditions Several methods (many based on “family modeling”)

27 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Family Modeling

28 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 3- Technology of Pavement Treatments Selecting appropriate treatments is important part of pavement management Synthesis contains Catalog: 24 AC treatments 24 PCC treatments

29 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Sample- Catalog of Treatments Operational Graphic Purpose & Selection Criteria Service Life & Cost Materials & Construction Airport use Resources (publications)

32 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 4- Identification of Needs Based on condition surveys, performance predictions, & criteria built into APMS Criteria based on 3 concepts: Maintenance policies Level of service Trigger values

33 a Expanding the Realm of Possibility Step 4- Identification of Needs MicroPaver identifies 2 levels of needs: Localized maintenance & repair  Year 1-specific treatments based on distresses  Future years- $ based on PCI ranges Generalized major M&R  unit $ based on PCI level
