The unique chartacteristics of military aircraft, in terms of speed, weight and tyre pressures demand specialist requirements on the surfacing of Ministry of Defence (MOD) airfields. This work gives specification requirements for airfield pavement works and sets out all the applications of concrete block paving in the construction and refurbishment of MOD airfield pavements. It also covers functional requirements of good rideability, good friction and drainage characteristics, high strength and stability to withstand the stresses induced by heavy wheel loads and high tyre pressures.
