Abstract: Tests were performed on landing mats and membranes to evaluate the antiskid properties of paints and antiskid coating when each was in contact with a loaded rubber tire, and/or when each was in contact with soil or membrane. The data were used to determine the forces which were transmitted through the mats to the underlying materials and which the anchors would have to resist to prevent mat movement under a braking aircraft tire. Panels with antiskid on both sides increased the resistance of panels to sliding along the ground, which in turn reduced the forces transmitted to the mat anchors. Test data indicated that the anchors would have to resist greater forces produced by aircraft braking when the mats were placed on membrane than when the mats were placed directly on soil.
