Course Synopsis:

Did you know? Pavement grooving was the first major step in achieving safer pavement surfaces for aircraft operations in wet weather conditions.

With the introduction of turbojet aircraft, braking performance on pavement surfaces has become more critical. Under certain conditions, hydroplaning or unacceptable loss of traction can occur, resulting in poor braking performance and possible loss of directional control. This course 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.

Course Objectives:

This course teaches the following specific engineering knowledge and skills regarding Measurement, Construction, and Maintenance of Skid-resistant Airport Pavement Surfaces:

  • Introduction to performance specifications for friction measuring equipment

  • Applications and procedures involving runway friction measurement, construction, and maintenance
