Measurement of Airfield Pavement Response Under Moving Aircraft Loads

Application of Extremely Low Altitude Photogrammetry for Monitoring Coastal Structures
Extremely low altitude mapping photography exposed from a helicopter is showing considerable promise in providing another method of extending the many benefits of photogrammetric data...

Oceanographic Earth Observations by Space Shuttle Astronauts
Thirty years of manned space flights have produced over 100,000 photographs of the Earth. Many of these photographs describe various coastal processes and oceanographic phenomena at a...

Aircraft Traffic Mix Analysis: Damage Factors and Coefficients
Historically, traffic mix analyses have been based upon the use of the critical or most damaging aircraft. The damage effects of other aircraft are either ignored or empirically incorporated...

The Effects of Runway Roughness on Aircraft Fatigue Life
A computer code developed within the Flight Dynamics Directorate of the Wright Laboratory was used to simulate the dynamic response of heavy aircraft operating on runways with various...

Tactical Aircraft and Airfield Recovery
This article is based on Captain Bahm's Master's thesis and was co-authored by his thesis advisor, Captain Polasek. The article is reprinted from the Airpower...

Runway Roughness Measurement, Quantification and Application: The Boeing Approach
The measurement of runway roughness and the determination of the severity of runway roughness have long been the subject of nebulous discussion and esoteric description. By considering...

Pavement Materials for ASTOVL Aircraft Application
Jet blast impingement on concrete is a problem today and will worsen when the new vectored-thrust aircraft become operational. Ground erosion has already been observed under the auxiliary...

ACN-PCN Concepts for Airport Pavement Management
The aircraft classification number-pavement classification number (ACN-PCN) method is the standardized International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) method for reporting airport pavement...

Aircraft/Pavement Interaction
An Integrated System
This proceedings, Aircraft/Pavement Interaction—An Integrated System, consists of papers presented at the specialty conference held in Kansas...

Aircraft Flexible Pavement Design in Australia
After World War Two, aircraft pavement design practice in Australia was largely developed from the work done by the U.S. Corps of Engineers. The C.B.R. pavement design method now differs...

Landing on Frictionless Surfaces
Who in his right mind would deliberately land an airplane on a frictionless surface? Unfortunately, professional pilots occasionally encounter situations where the friction between rubber...

Remote Sensing and the Coastal Management in Brazil
This paper intends to demonstrate the possibility of employing remote sensing techniques in the Brazilian Coastal Management Program (Programa Brasileiro de Gerenciamento Costeiro). It...

Space Station Freedom Pressurized Module Meteoroid/Debris Protection
Protection of spacecraft from the effects of a meteoroid/debris particle impact can add significant weight to the required structure. This paper discusses the meteoroid and debris environments...

Reliability Assessment of Pressurized Fuselages with Multiple-Site Fatigue Cracks
Multiple-site damage could cause a catastrophic structural failure of aged aircraft. A reliability analysis is proposed for an assessment of the capability of visual inspection on multiple-site...
