Description: Technical memorandum
General: The purpose of these tests was to determine the general utility of PBS for use on airfields for light aircraft. The tests consisted of limited traffic repetitions on various types of fabric impregnated both with unfilled asphalt and with asphalt containing 40% filler, using 7,000-, 15,000- and 37,000-lb wheel loads operated at slow speeds. Braking and turning tests were also made. Condition of the surfacing material was studied tinder high and low temperatures and under different conditions of storage. In addition, certain tests on packaging for shipment were conducted.
