Antiskid and Modern Aircraft 720868

The essence of braking control is to adjust the brake pressure properly at all times to maintain brake torque at the correct level to balance the tire-runway friction force at its peak value, and thus give the aircraft maximum available deceleration.
Hydro-Aire has been involved in the development of skid control systems from the days of the old “tire savers” to today's fully automatic braking controls. This paper presents the technical history and evolution of the modern brake control or “antiskid” system.
