Abstract:

Results are presented on a cost effectiveness study of expedient prefabricated membrane surfacings for use on military airfields in theaters of operations. The purpose of the study was to provide a basis for deciding whether to develop a family of membranes of various weights, or a single membrane of optimum weight to meet requirements set forth in a Department of the Army Approved Qualitative Materiel Requirement. Existing data and experience were collected, criteria for membrane effectiveness were developed, and important parameters identified. Models were developed for theaters of operation, performance, cost and effectiveness. A trade-off analysis, cost-effectiveness study, and membrane development plan are presented.
