On Thursday, 13 June 2019 from 14:30 to 17:45, a Workshop will be presented by FAA’s R&D Team. No participation fee is required. All registered participants to the 7th ICONBMP are welcome to attend it.

The topic of this workshop is “Airport pavement design-FAARFIELD 1.4” and the aim is to familiarize the attendees with the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) recently developed software in airfield pavements.

In particular, FAARFIELD 1.41 (FAA Rigid and Flexible Iterative Elastic Layered Design) was introduced in November 2016.  FAARFIELD continues the “look and feel” of the FAA’s software FAARFIELD 1.3, but also includes significant changes.  The FAARFIELD design procedure is the FAA’s standard for airport pavement design and is included in the FAA’s new Advisory Circular 150/5320-6F, “Airport Pavement Design and Evaluation”.

This FAA software workshop is intended for airport operators, consultants,  and others with a practical interest in airport pavement design.  Participants in the workshop will:

1.   Learn the principles of pavement design & pavement analysis using FAA software including FAARFIELD 1.4.
2.   Experience hands-on demonstrations of the FAARFIELD software, with examples.
3.   Understand the major difference between FAARFIELD and previous FAA design procedures.

It is highly recommended that workshop participants bring their own laptops so they can install FAARFIELD to follow along through the training and pavement design examples.

The title of the Workshop on Thurday, 13 June 2019 from 11:15 to 13:15, will be announced soon.

During the works of the Conference there will be an exhibition area where companies and Organizations will exhibit their products and activities.
