Multiple factors enter into all runway accidents, including airport design and construction and Right now it’s all about focusing resources more effectively to reduce risk, and prevent runway accidents
Attending the 3rd Annual Airfield Engineering and Asset Maintenance forum will provide a global platform where aviation authorities can share experiences and best practices to evaluate their current safety frameworks as well as determine a multidisciplinary approach to improve your runway safety outcomes!
Tom Yager, NASA will be sharing the factors influencing pavement texture, identifies available techniques to measure and improve texture and discusses how tire friction performance is directly related to pavement texture.
