WORKSHOP 10-2. FRICTION AND CONTAMINATION ASSESSMENTS FOR RUNWAYS

Oct. 9, Wednesday. 14:00-17:30

Capital Suite 7

Chair: Dr. Guilhem BLANCHARD, STAC, France

The workshops are an integral part of the Congress programme. They take place in parallel with the sessions. They are more interactive than the sessions and are more practical. There is no simultaneous translation.
