WORKSHOP: FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT DESIGN FOR AIRPORTS USING FAARFIELD 1.41 (FAA Airport Pavement Design Procedure)
Date: June 18th, 2018
Time: To be confirmed
Presenter: Dr. Navneet Garg, Federal Aviation Administration
About the Workshop:
The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released the latest update to its pavement design software, FAARFIELD 1.41, in November 2016. FAARFIELD implements a mechanistic-empirical approach to rigid and flexible pavement design, incorporating both layered elastic and 3D finite element structural models.
This workshop will familiarize participants with the latest FAA design procedures, with an emphasis on practical design examples for new flexible pavements. Because FAARFIELD was developed to support FAA standard pavement designs, a basic understanding of FAA material and construction standards is necessary for proper use of the program. Therefore, the properties of FAA standard materials will be examined in some detail. Other topics covered in this workshop will include: design life; cumulative damage factors (CDF) and pass/coverage ratio, subgrade and subbase layer characterization for design; using the FAARFIELD aircraft libraries; and interpreting the design report. The FAARFIELD methods of airport overlay design will be covered if time permits.
Note: It is highly recommended that workshop participants bring their own laptops so they can install FAARFIELD 1.41 and follow along through the pavement design examples. Ample time will be provided for questions and discussion.
The FAARFIELD 1.41 software can be downloaded free of charge at:http://www.airporttech.tc.faa.gov/Download/Airport-Pavement-Software-Program

Come to ISAP Conference and enjoy your stay by meeting the most beautiful beaches in our state!
See some options!
“Jeri” is a place out of the ordinary compared to the modern world’s great cities, with run times, crowded traffic and queues. The streets are covered in sand and beaches extend for miles without visual interference. Everything has a slower and more relaxed feel. In 1984, a federal law declared Jericoacoara area of environmental protection, due to restrictions on construction and environmental protection laws, Jericoacoara has grown in a positive way. Businessmen engaged in protecting the beauty and simplicity “Jeri”, have created small and cozy inns that offer charm and sophistication without grandeur or extravagance.
Located on the east coast of the state of Ceara, 162 km distant from the capital Fortaleza, Canoa Quebrada has stable climate, between 27 and 30 degrees C. throughout the year. The origin of this ancient fishing village dating from the seventeenth century. Today, besides the unique landscape, the most popular attractions to enjoy the sun are the dune buggy rides. Take a day to make a raft trip and stay in touch with the nature of the place, from the top of the highest dune in Canoa you can admire one of the greatest shows in the northeast, the sunset of Canoa.
A fascinating sunset from the top of the cliffs, mazes where visitors stroll and observe sands of twelve different colors, rafts sailing on the sea in search of fish, dunes, ponds, beauty and adventure, everything is found in Morro Branco Beach and Praia das Fontes in Beberibe, 85km from the capital Fortaleza. Waterspouts, fountains of natural waters, cliffs, caves, strong waves crashing against the rocks, trails through the cliffs (cliffs of sand) are some of the enchantments reserved for visitors. The labyrinth, whose entrance is by the beach is the main attraction. Numerous native guides offer their services at affordable values.
Located in the municipality of Paraipaba the Lagoinha beach is an obligatory stop for tourists. A cliff 50 meters high forms a natural lookout, flanked by the unique reddish tone dune in Ceará and dotted with coconut palms that leads to the sea. Westward is Almécegas Lagoon, the limpid and sweet water, ideal for who are passing through and want to remove the salt before traveling.
