Abstract:

The investigation was conducted to evaluate MO-MAT, a reinforced plastic material molded into a waffle-like configuration, for use as light-duty landing mat. Tests were conducted on four special panels of MO-MAT 158 connected by nut plates with bolts placed in predrilled holes. The traffic tests were conducted using C-130 aircraft loading on three prepared subgrades of different strengths. Results of this investigation indicated that MO-MAT 158 will sustain 96, 184, and 500 actual coverages of traffic when placed on subgrades with rated CBRs of 4.0, 6.5, and 10, respectively.
