POROUS FRICTION SURFACE COURSE
A study was conducted on the use of porous friction courses for airport pavements as a means of alleviating aircraft hydroplaning. The study consisted of laboratory investigation of material requirements and mix design development and a field study of construction control, construction processes, and long-term performance. The laboratory results were correlated where possible with the field observations. Satisfactory performance was obtained with a recommended aggregate gradation. A procedure for obtaining a design asphalt content and field mixing temperature, minimum field permeability values, and laboratory procedures for conducting permeability tests are described. A standard recommended guide specification is also included as an appendix.
- Research was sponsored by the FAA, Systems Research and Development Service, under interagency agreement.
