Skid-resistant Airport Pavement Surfaces
With the introduction of turbojet aircraft, braking performance on pavement surfaces has become more critical. Under certain conditions, hydroplaning or unacceptable loss of traction can occur, resulting in poor braking performance and possible loss of directional control.
This course contains guidelines and procedures for the design and construction of skid-resistant pavement, pavement evaluation with friction measuring equipment, and maintenance of high skid-resistant pavements.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 2 PDH credit.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Introduction to performance specifications for friction measuring equipment
- Applications and procedures involving runway friction measurement, construction, and maintenance
