The investigation was conducted to evaluate an aluminum alloy landing mat designated MX18-E. The mat is a 4- by 4-ft, four-piece, 6061-T6 aluminum alloy panel. The panel consisted of four 12-in.-wide extrusions welded together to form the 4-ft width. The panels when placed are joined along two edges by interlocking male and female hinge-type connectors, which are integral parts of the basic panel extrusion. The adjacent edges consist of extruded aluminum overlap and underlap connectors that are welded to the basic panel. A locking bar secures these connectors after individual panels have been nested.
