Abstract:
During the period 1969 through 1973, three full-scale tests tracks were subjected to accelerated traffic with load carts simulating the main landing gear configurations on wide-bodied jet aircraft. The performance studies included plain concrete, fibrous concrete, various construction joint systems, insulating materials, and several base or subbase types including a membrane encased soil layer.
