Modem warfare has created unprecedented requirements for mobility. There are ever increasing
demands for soundly engineered and properly maintained roads and airfields. In a theater of operations,
the rapid construction and maintenance of road nets and airfields must proceed in the face of tremendous
difficulties. To meet his increasing responsibilities, the engineer must have a complete understanding of
pavement materials, design considerations, and construction procedures.
This subcourse contains detailed information about the types and uses of flexible pavements; material
estimation; design and construction procedures, and the types and uses of expedient paving surfacing.
