Braking Capabilities on Flooded Runways: Flight Test Results Obtained with a Business Jet
Statistics show that the likelihood of a runway excursion during takeoff or landing is much higher on flooded runways than on dry runways. Extreme loss of tyre braking can occur during rejected takeoffs and landings on ...
NLR’s experience with flight testing on wet and flooded runways
(Society of Flight Test Engineers, 2017-09)
Braking performance of aircraft is affected whenever a runway is wet or flooded. Aircraft manufacturers do wet runway braking tests during the certification of a civil transport aircraft. These are normally limited to tests ...
Stopping performance flight test on a flooded runway
(Society of Experimental Test Pilots, 2017-07)
One of the identified solutions for runway excursions is the research into the “Impact of fluid contaminants of varying depth on aircraft stopping performance”. For this, NLR has carried out water-pond flight testing with ...
