Preliminary study of the effect of fines on sanded-ice friction / George L. Blaisdell, Sharon L. Borland.

Title: Preliminary study of the effect of fines on sanded-ice friction / George L. Blaisdell, Sharon L. Borland.
Author(s): Blaisdell, George L.
Borland, Sharon L.
Date: 1992.
In: Cold Regions Science and Technology. (1992.), Vol. 21(1) (1992)
Abstract: Discusses type of sand that should be used to improve friction on airport runways liable to icing. Ideally, it should provide high coefficient of friction, be easy and cheap to obtain, and cause minimal wear or damage to jet engines. This preliminary laboratory study focuses on first requirement. Sliding friction was measured for rubber-faced slider for each sand type under test at -10°C on three surfaces: bare ice, loose sanded ice, and ice with sand frozen on. Results suggest strong possibility that coefficient of friction on cold sanded ice is positively influenced by percentage of fines in sand.
