British Or European Standards For Designing Runway

Tue Jan 11, 2011 7:52 pm

I'm looking for British or European standards for designing runways? Can't seem to find any books or sites that lsit the quality/standards/legislation that runways need to meet.

Just a nudge in the right direction would be much appreciated.

There is a CAA document that covers the requirements in terms of sizes. There doesn't seem to be anything that covers the actual depths of concrete or whatever.

Quoting mehairy7 (Thread starter):
designing runways

As a civil engineer or as an airport operator?

Try ICAO Annex 14 Vol 1. Otherwise the civil side is all about ACNs and PCNs. Google is your friend.
