This paper presents a brief summary of the research work accomplished on runway skid resistance and hydroplaning by the USAF. The research objectives wre to develop a standard evaluation system for determining the skid resistance ans hydroplaning potential of Air Force runways and to develop optimum corrective techniques for improving skid resistance properties of airfield pavements The paper describes the evaluation system developed around the M7-Meter and the Diagonally Braked Vehicle (DBV).
