Abstract: Advent of B-52 heavy bomber with 8 jet engines operating in unison under full power has created new requirements for deflecting aircraft blast at both military and civil airports; Air Force tests show that single and multiple curved vane louvered fences meet requirements and perform most satisfactorily; these fences may be procured for $30 to $35 per linear foot installed on existing paving.
