The Friction Classification of Runways
Abstract : The fundamental principles regarding the design of runway surfaces to provide high friction under wet conditions are well known and have been put into practice for some time. In the past aExpand
A Means of Specifying a Standard Reference Wet Surface for Military Aircraft
Abstract : Aircraft specifications which quote stop distances under dry conditions can be misleading since it is the wet case which gives the longer stop distance and may define the length of anExpand
Trials to Compare the Stopping Performance of Three Anti-Skid Systems and to Demonstrate Methods of Determining Aircraft Stop Distances on the Standard Military Reference Wet Surface
Abstract : The main part of this report is concerned with a trial to determine if there was any difference in the stop distance of a BAC 1-11 aircraft under wet runway conditions when fitted withExpand
AN INVESTIGATION INTO MEASURING RUNWAY SURFACE TEXTURE BY THE GREASE PATCH AND OUTFLOW METER METHODS
Abstract : A measurement of 'surface texture' is used by some organizations as a means of specifying runway friction for stop distance calculations and certification purposes in spite of theExpand
