Abstract:

The initial phase of the study was conducted to evaluate four experimental, aluminum landing mats, and to develop CBR design curves for the one selected as most satisfactory, which was standardized and designated by the Navy as Airfield Matting No. 1 AM1. For the second phase of the study, a production quantity of the AM1 mat was manufactured and subjected to the same types of field tests used for the experimental mats on subgrades with CBRs ranging from about 5 to 16.
