Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report presents results of tests conducted to evaluate the load capacity of aircraft mooring and grounding points. Both existing mooring points located at a military installation and newly designed systems were evaluated. Specifically, this report documents laboratory and field investigations on mooring systems to evaluate their ability to withstand anticipated forces applied by a moored Army aircraft during a 100-knot wind.
