USE OF OPEN GRADED HOT MIX SURFACINGS ON AIRFIELDS
This paper describes some historical background to the use of open graded hot mix surfacings (frequently referred to as "porous friction courses") on airfield runways as an aid in the reduction of the wet weather slipperiness problem. The advantages and disadvantages of such mixes are discussed, together with some design and construction aspects of the limited Australian experience to date in their use on airfield runways.
