Aircraft computer simulation is effective in identifying and assessing aircraft response to pavement roughness, as Marc Stet explains. The responsibility for runway roughness lies with each individual airport operating authority. ICAO’s Annex 14 contains only very general information regarding airfield pavement roughness.
This article from this Dutch research organisation outlines some of the recently finished and on-going projects dealing with airport pavement technology research in The Netherlands, including work on friction measurement devices and runway classification.
