PORTUGAL – FINAL CHARACTERIZATION OF THE MADEIRA AIRPORT PAVEMENTS

CONSULSTRADA, one of the COBA Group’s companies, was awarded the Study for Final Characterization of the Pavements, within the scope of the Strengthening of the Pavements of the Madeira International Airport (Funchal).

The study consisted in the validation of the design assumptions, namely the assessment of the Load Bearing Capacity, with the respective calculation of the runway’s PCN, measurement of the International Roughness Index, and measurement of the pavement surface Friction and Texture of this airport’s taxiways.

All these parameters were measured resorting to appropriate high performance equipment, namely the Falling Weight Deflectomer, Laser Profilograph and the Grip Tester.
