Abstract:

The study was conducted to determine the optimum panel size of the various sizes of AM1 landing mat. The mat was to sustain 1600 operational cycles of an aircraft having a gross weight of 60,000 lb with a single-wheel main-gear-assembly load of 27,000 lb and a 30-7.7 tire inflated to 400 psi. A test section consisting of three items with different subgrade strengths and surfaced with the various sizes of panels was constructed and subjected to accelerated traffic of the 27,000-lb test load with tire inflated to 400 psi.
