Abstract:

The investigation was conducted to evaluate the performance, under simulated aircraft loadings, of a guide rail for use in assisted take-offs designed for use with Airfield Matting No. 2 AM2, Kaiser Aluminum Companys AM2 when used in conjunction with guide rail and when used without guide rail, and modified AM2 from Harvey Aluminum, Inc., when used in conjunction with guide rail. It was specifically desired to determine the effect that subgrade strength and soil type would have on the performance of the guide rail and AM2.
