Abstract:

The purpose of this research program was to collect all available measured prepared surface profile and power spectral data, to ascertain the reliability of these data, to establish from these data design criteria for vehicles opera ting on prepared surfaces, and to demonstrate the applicability of these design criteria. All of the known power spectral density and profile data sets which have been compiled in the United States and in the countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are described. Power spectral density curves are given for those data sets which do not appear in United States Government Agency documents. The procedures used for calculation of these power spectral densities are examined and recommendations as to which power spectral have been accurately computed are made. Design criteria for vehicles operating on prepared surfaces runways, taxiways or ramps are established in the form of power spectral densities and discrete bumps. Author
