Abstract : Tests were conducted to determine the suitability of heavy-duty airfield surfacing and accessories as expedient membrane surfacing for waterproofing and dustproofing hastily prepared airfields for operations of C-130 aircraft. The objectives of the tests were to compare the heavy-duty membrane with the WX18 membrane, and to determine through laboratory and field tests whether the heavy-duty membrane met the requirements of the Department of the Army approved Qualitative Materiel Requirement (QMR) for Prefabricated Airfield Surfacings.
