Abstract:

The mat is a sandwich structure composed of an egg-crate type configuration core bonded by adhesives on top and bottom to steel facings. The sides of the panels are joined by integral tongue-and-groove connections and secured by stainless steel pins. This investigation consisted of engineering traffic tests which were conducted on a prepared subgrade with a rolling wheel load simulating actual aircraft operations.
