What is Runway Blast Pad?

As we all know aircraft are leaving the runway after taking-off at an angle close to 3 degrees. Due to this angle of the aircraft and the strong jet blast from the engines, soil just after the end of the runway can be thrown in to the runway surface. There should some means to avoid this introduction of FOD to the runway. As a solution for this a special surface called Runway Bast Pads are installed just after the end of the runway. They are not robust as the runway surface and pilots are not permitted to land or taxi in this area unless during an aborted take-off or runway over-run in a landing. Blast Pads are marked with yellow color chevrons.
