Investigating the Potential of Alternative Materials and Configurations for EMAS Design

An EMAS is positioned within the runway safety area (RSA) and is comprised of an energy absorbing material that brings the aircraft to stoppage during an overrun. EMAS are currently constructed using low-density 1.21m x 1.21m (4-ft x 4-ft) variable thickness cementitious blocks. New materials, new configurations, along with implementing technology should be investigated to develop an efficient and economic EMAS design.... more »
