Abstract:

Detailed procedures for conducting the standard runway skid resistance test are included for use in implementing an Air Force-wide skid resistance testing program. Each step in the testing procedure, ranging from calibration of the test equipment to recording of field data is discussed. Copies of all special forms required for recording data are included. Use of these forms greatly facilitates the use of computer analysis package, which has been prepared to analyze data gathered in the standard test. When the test is conducted according to procedures in this report, a great deal of information is gained about the hydroplaning potential of the runway surface. The test, therefore, represents a significant advance in the state-of-the-art of measuring runway skid resistance. Results of the test indicate directly if corrective action is required to improve runway skid resistance properties, thereby giving information unavailable from any other source.
