Experience with landing mat has led to increased confidence through accumulated knowledge of its performance. This in turn indicated a need to relax the early-adopted policy of very conservatively rating the subgrade strength of test sections used in determining mat performance. This report documents the revised policy and presents revised T11 landing mat design criteria developed from recent data and those in the basic report. The specific design curves presented herein for airfields surface with T11 mat plates 1-7 should be considered in lieu of those in the basic report which were prepared on the more conservative philosophy of test analysis.
