Abstract

In order to research the feasibility of aluminum honeycomb mat to sustain S aircraft over austere airfield pavement, static loading test was applied in field experiment. Three test sections were constructed with different strength. The instrument results (displacement and strain) of testing were used to evaluate the performance of mats. The influences of mat thicknesses, soil foundation, locks, interlocking action and voids were analyzed. Experimental results indicate that it is feasible that aluminum honeycomb mat sustain S aircraft over austere airfield pavement which needs only a Middle-strength soil foundation. Modifications to the panels, locks and joints design are recommended to improve the performance of mats.
