Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation is to compare the effect of impact loads produced by the landing of heavy airplanes and equivalent static loads on concrete runways. For the severest probable landings the load factor cannot exceed 2.0, and for normal landings the load factor is less than 1.0 for planes having a gross weight of 14,500 lbs. or more. For impact loads of the type a plane exerts upon landing the resulting stresses do not exceed those which would result from an equivalent static load. Author
