It’s not every day that the Ashford Formula is applied to a vertical concrete surface. While it has been applied to a variety of non-flooring concrete surfaces, this particular application of the Ashford Formula to 100 cast-in-place concrete columns at the Dallas Love Field Terminal Expansion project is quite unique.
The GAMECO Hangar Facilities in Guangzhou, China can service as many as four wide -bodied planes or 12 narrow-bodied planes at a time.
To accommodate such heave duty traffic, the Ashford Formula was applied to more than 1,000,000 square feet (96,000 square meters) of concrete surface. The results were a fortified surface ready to handle any amount of aircraft at any given time.
