MEASUREMENT, CONSTRUCTION, AND MAINTENANCE OF SKID-RESISTANT AIRPORTPAVEMENT SURFACES

This advisory circular (AC) contains guidelines and procedures for the design and construction of skid-resistant pavement, pavement evaluation with friction measuring equipment, and maintenance of high skid-resistant pavements.

With the introduction of turbojet aircraft, braking performance on pavementsurfaces has become more critical. Under certain conditions, hydroplaning or unacceptable loss of traction can occur, resulting in poor brakingperformance and possible loss of directional control.To address this concern, a number of research projects were conducted by the National Aeronautics and SpaceAdministration (NASA), FAA, United States Air Force(USAF), and various foreign governments. These efforts concentrated in two major areas: (a) high skid resistant pavement surface design and evaluation and(b) application of proper maintenance techniques and procedures. In this circular, guidelines are provided to airport operators on how to locate and restore areas on the pavement surface where friction has deteriorated below acceptable levels for aircraft braking performance. The material contained in this circularsummarizes the findings of these research efforts.
