Another aspect of rubblizing that is popular is Airport Runways. In many instances, airport runways can run as a deep as 26 inches thick with pcc pavement. A popular choice for runway rehabilitation is to rubblize the concrete and do a HMA (hot mix Asphalt) overlay. Resonant Machines has been involved in numerous projects throughout the USA with this process. It has met with great success.

RUBBLIZING AIRPORT RUNWAYS
- Slabs may be rubblized up to 26” thick
- Rubblization with HMA overlay takes 1/5 the time to reconstruct
- Rubblization with HMA overlay is 1/3 the cost of break and remove
- Life Cycle costs substantially less
During the process, like most roadway projects, there is a test dig involved to check the fracture pattern in the rubblization process as well as steel debonding. With all steel debonded, and an interlock fracture pattern, the end result is a solid rubblized aggregate base, with no destruction to the underlying base.
