METHODOLOGY FOR DETERMINING, ISOLATING, AND CORRECTING RUNWAY ROUGHNESS
A method to determine the roughness of runway profiles in terms of aircraft response is presented. The aircraft response is specified in terms of pilot-station vertical accelerations, which are determined from computer simulation. Corrections to the profiles are then made to reduce the aircraft response.
