Pagination or Media Count:
Results of installing different groove patterns on a variety of asphalt and concrete taxiways at airports with varying climatic regimes are presented. Methods and procedures effecting the installation of groove patterns in airport pavements are discussed, as well as the resulting changes in the groove patterns over the observation period of seven to eighteen months. Some deterioration of grooves occurred in the taxiways with asphalt surfaces under high temperature conditions. Recommendations based on these tests are presented for future grooving projects. Author
