THE RESISTANCE OF POROUS ASPHALT AND ANTIHYDROPLANING SURFACES TO ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS AND SIMULATED AIRCRAFT WHEEL LOADINGS

The resistance of test strips of porous asphalt and several other antihydroplaning surfaces to environmental effects and simulated aircraft wheel loadings is described. The report shows that porous asphalt and porous asphalt with a rubber additive are the most promising antihydroplaning materials currently available and that, for various reasons, the other antihydroplaning surfaces tested were marginally acceptable or unacceptable.
