Abstract : For several years work has been done in the field of wheel brakes on the problem of measuring or calculating braking distances of aeroplanes on a wet runway. We are aware of the importance of this question for both civil and military aircraft. The tests which have so far been carried out have not always been for the same purpose but the sum total of the results acquired permits us already to draw certain conclusions. These conclusions are given in this report. (Author)
