  • 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 a locked wheel trailer has been used to assess the relative friction of runways by making measurements at a number of isolated points on the surface. With the development of the Continuous Recording Runway Friction Meter (Mu-Meter) and a runway self wetting system contained in the tow vehicle, it has… CONTINUE READING
