Abstract:

The investigation was conducted to evaluate a waterproof version of XM19 landing mat. Laboratory, blast, and traffic tests were conducted on three versions of the XM19 waterproof mat. The traffic tests were conducted using a 25,000-lb F-4C single-wheel load with a tire inflation pressure of 250 psi. The tests were conducted both inside a hangar for protection from the elements and in an exposed area in which the tests were conducted over a six-month period with the mat subjected to both natural and simulated rainfall.
