Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation was accomplished by conducting two series of full-scale tests using instrumented aircraft and both flexible and rigid instrumented runways. One series of tests was conducted during the cold period of the year when the average temperature of the top pavement layer was in the range of 35 to 55 F, while the second series was conducted during the hot period of the year when the average temperature was in the range of approximately 84 to 116 F. An instrumentation system was installed aboard the aircraft to measure and record the three components of force of each of the main gear assemblies of the aircraft.
