The pavement management system also provide information which helped engineers focus on which areas of the runway required temporary repairs in order to extend the runway service life until it was reconstructed. Having an up to date operational study of the runway proved invaluable. When the growth in air traffic operations led to delays, a conceptual plan to improve runway efficiency was already developed and ready for implementation. Keeping abreast of the development and production of New Large Aircraft and studying its impact on airfield infrastructure was also useful.

The existing pavement was considered an undefined base and a variety of elastic modulus values were used in the analysis. PCC thickness results ranged from 15-20 inches (38 to 51 cm). The 18-inch (46 cm) overlay selected considered the existing asphalt and existing PCC as an equivalent asphalt pavement with an elastic modulus of 200,000 psi (1380 mPa). Eighty-six aircraft types operate at JFK, which exceeds FAARFIELD’s input capabilities, so similar aircraft were grouped and a representative aircraft used in the design.
