Air traffic volumes are sky rocketing across Asia and new airfield projects and expansions are rapidly underway. But amidst all this development is the important, yet under-appreciated aspect of airfield materials and friction. These elements determine the friction between airplane tires and the airfield surface, as well as stopping distance, surface drainage, durability and of course safety. To learn more, we got in touch with one of the world’s leading experts on the subject, Prof Thomas J Yager, Distinguished Research Associate at NASA.
