Abstract: A study was conducted on the use ot porous friction courses for airport pavements as a means of alleviating aircratt hydroplaning. The study consisted of a laboratory investigation of material requirements and mix design development and of a field study of construction control, construction processes, and long-term performance. The laboratory results were correlated where possible with the field observations. Satisfactory performance was obtained with a recommended aggregate gradation. A procedure for obtaining a design asphalt content and field mixing temperature, minimum field permeability values, and laboratory procedures for conducting permeability tests are described. A standard recommended guide specification is also included as an appendix.
