Correspondence on Jetblast Temperature - Resistant Concrete for Harrier Aircraft Pavements by Dr. S.A. Austin, Dr. P.J. Robins and Mr. M.R. Richards

Mr J. A. Emery (Advanced Construction Materials Ltd) The authors of this paper have made a valuable contribution to our knowledge of the performance of limestone concrete aircraft pavements under thermal shock conditions. Their development of new concretes having improved jetblast resistance is of great interest, but the following comment from World Air Power Journal, Vol. 6, Summer 1991, p47, does beg the question should a specialised concrete surface be necessary at all?
