Abstract:

Tests were conducted at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station to determine the suitability of the redesigned XW18 membrane and accessories as expedient surfacing for waterproofing and dustproofing hastily prepared airfields for operations of C-130 aircraft. The objectives of the tests were as follows to compare the redesigned XW18 membrane with the WX18 membrane, which was considered unsuitable as an expedient surfacing for C-130 operations as a result of integrated engineering and service tests conducted at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky, during 11 May to 15 November 1966, and to determine whether the XW18 membrane met the requirements of the Department of the Army approved Qualitative Materiel Requirement QMR for Prefabricated Airfield Surfacings.
