Abstract:The U.S. Navy is evaluating jet-blast and heat-resistant materials for high-temperature pavements. The research program includes laboratory and jet exhaust blast tests. Paper describes the jet exhaust blast tests on heat-resistant pavement materials reinforced with stainless steel fiber. The optimum steel fiber content for jet blast-resistant pavement was about 0.8 to 1.2 percent by volume. The test panels prepared by casting were stronger than those by gunning. The results from the jet exhaust blast tests were used in the design of a full-scale V/TOL test pad, AV-8B power check pads, and fire-fighting training facilities.
