This paper discusses the equipment and methodologies currently used for nondestructive testing (NDT) and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of the structural capacity of military and civil airport pavements, including: (1) commonly used equipment and test methods for measuring pavement response to dynamic loads; (2) qualitative and quantitative evaluation of NDT data; (3) methods for back-calculating layer properties from NDT data; (4) layered elastic methods for evaluating pavement performance using processed NDT data; and (5) application of analytical results for developing pavement rehabilitation and management strategies.
