Abstract

The technical paper and presentation will give the audience at the conference an exhilarating surf ride of some of the leading edge of technologies in airport engineering. We have been using these advanced, modern and innovative technologies at the three airports in the Houston Airport System for the last twenty-three years. This should blend beautifully with the theme and title of the conference. The following topics among numerous others used should be enough to whet one’s appetite for advance, modern and innovative technologies in airport engineering. These project applications in the real world have made the Houston Airport System one of the leading users of the leading edge of technologies among airports in the country. • Novophalt asphalt (polymer modified asphalt) concrete technology used on runways and taxiways. • Soil stabilization using lime/fly ash in slurry form. • Soil stabilization using cement/fly ash in slurry form. • Soil stabilization using a blend of fly ash and bottom ash. • Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayer (SAM) for reflective cracking of pavements. • Lime/cement/fly ash/crushed concrete stabilized base used on runways and taxiways. • New concrete pavement on runways and taxiways using cement, fly ash and blast furnace slag. • Cement/fly ash crushed concrete base for runways and taxiways.

Advanced, Modern and Innovative Technologies Used at the Houston Airport System (Stabilized Subgrades and Stabilized Bases)
