Jetblast Temperature-Resistant Concrete for Harrier Aircraft Pavements

Conventional limestone concrete airfield pavements are prone to spalling as a result of jetblast from vertical takeoff and landing aircraft. This paper describes a collaborative research programme aimed at developing jetblast-resistant pavement quality concretes incorporating alternative cementitious materials and aggregates. Ten alternative mixes were evaluated by subjecting slabs to simulated Harrier jet-engine blast on the ground erosion test facility at British Aerospace, Warton. S.A. Austin, P.J. Robins and M.R.
