Description: Technical memorandum
Purpose: The purpose of these tests was to determine the feasibility from a construction standpoint of incorporating light bar and rod airplane landing mat in gravelly sand-clay base course material to form a surfacing for airplane runways for use in the theatre of operations, and to determine the relative efficacy of such surfacing tinder traffic in comparison with standard steel pierced plank landing mat with and without base courses and with base courses without mat.
