Abstract:

This investigation was conducted to evaluate a modified and connector on the AM2 landing mat fabricated by Harvey Aluminum, Inc., Torrance, Calif. A test section, consisting of three clay subgrade items with different strengths and one sand item, was constructed and surfaced with the modified AM2 mat. The test section was subjected to traffic representing 1600 operational cycles of an aircraft having a 60,000-lb gross weight with a single-wheel main-gear assembly load of 27,000 lb and a 30-7.7 tire inflated to 400 psi.
