Abstract : This test was conducted in order to acquire additional information in regard to Tire Rub Strip wear characteristics. Specifically, this information was: (1) to ascertain material and thickness of an insulator to back up a rub-strip pad to protect the main landing gear doors; (2) to determine the feasibly of riveting or bonding the back-up insulator to the rub-strip; (3) to determine the method of rub-strip attachment to the aircraft structure; and (4) to determine the effective life of the rub-strip plate.
