The report describes an investigation to determine the uplift characteristics of M19 welded aluminum landing mat when it is subjected to the high-velocity exhaust blast of a jet engine. The investigation consisted of two phases. The first phase was a wind tunnel test of a half-scale section of the M19 mat panel which consisted of making pressure measurements on the upper and lower surfaces of the M19 landing mat model. The pressures were then integrated to yield the uplift force and overturning moment acting on the model. The test gave information on the effect of the landing mat connector and angle of attack on the aerodynamic characteristics of the model.
