Runway friction characteristics measurement and aircraft braking (RuFAB)


Occurrences of runway overruns and veer-offs, where ice, snow, slush or standing water patches are contributing factors, have been a constant issue for aviation. The main objective of the research project is to provide a sound basis for the development of regulatory, standardisation or R&D actions, namely to contribute to the progress of the ICAO Friction Task Force (FTF) action plan and prepare the prerequisites to the future EASA rules for aerodrome safety.
