Abstract : Tests were conducted to determine the relationship of friction measurements, as computed from full-scale jet aircraft braking tests, to measurements obtained with special ground vehicular equipment on an operational runway under simulated adverse weather conditions. Results indicated that it may be possible to employ special vehicular equipment to obtain operational runway surface friction which can be related to the maximum energy braking effectiveness for a full-scale jet aircraft.
