Influence of steel reinforced pavements on aircraft system
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2005 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

This research investigated how steel nets used as reinforcement in taxiways


runways affect systems on board aircraft. It is stated that for High


Radiated Fields from radio- or radar transmitters, steel nets have a


effect and therefore decrease the risk of interference with aircraft systems.


aircraft compasses it is concluded that permanently magnetic steel nets


a significant source of interference. It was further concluded that steel


typically used as reinforcement, have such properties that they do not become

permanently magnetic and consequently there is no risk of interference with

aircraft compasses. Diverging compasses at Arlanda airport are explained as a

consequence of using permanently magnetic steel nets of non-typical quality.
