|Publication Date:||10 June 1998|
|ICS Code (Construction of airports):||93.120|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of airport pavement condition through visual surveys of asphalt-surfaced pavements, including porous friction courses, and plain or reinforced jointed portland cement concrete pavements, using the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) method of quantifying pavement condition.
1.2 The PCI for airport pavements was developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers through the funding provided by the US Air Force (1, 2, 3). It is further verified and adopted by FAA (4), and the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (5).
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 6.
