According to the statistical of aviation safety, arresting system must be installed on the runway with effective way, in order to maximize reduce the risk of overshot the runway and the damage to plane carrying personnel loss rate. ESCO companies began to study Engineered Material Arresting System(EMAS) in the United States from 1986. It is a new type of runway arresting system which is made up of highly broken foam concrete material and laid in the end of the runway for aircraft emergency stops. For safety area that can't achieve ICAO technical requirements provides a feasible solution at the airport. EMAS principle is the use of the rectangle of foam concrete pavement materials in the runway safety area, if the plane overshot the runway, it will rushed into the foam concrete material, thus can absorb the impact energy of the aircraft, the aircraft slowed last within the scope of the safety distance to stop. After 30 years of development, the EMAS has been successfully installed all over the world produced at USA. Accordingly, domestic EMAS has also been successfully produced and installed in China.
