Aging Air Traffic Control Tower Facilities

Many airports have air traffic control tower (ATCT) facilities that were constructed more than 50 years ago and despite renovation and rehabilitation efforts, they are reaching the end of their useful life. Some do not meet updated FAA siting and design criteria, and other state-of-art practices. NATCA conducted a survey in 10 years ago (2007) that indicated over two-thirds of the ATCTs were rated as having fair to poor... more »

ACRP Insight Event - Future of Aviation In Reserve

This is a proposal for a two-day ACRP Insight Event on the Future of Aviation at the Beckman Center. The findings from this event would be used to help develop an ACRP future of aviation research roadmap (please see below for more details). The proposed location is recommended due to its closer proximity to key aviation and technology companies and thought leaders who may be interested in planning and/or participating... more »

Research Projects

Development of a Predictive Model of Jet Blast Exposure In Reserve

The goal of this research idea is to develop a predictive model of jet blast exposure based on local parameters (taxiway slope, operating conditions, aircraft operator practices, temperature, types of aircraft, etc.). This model will be based on jet blast measurements performed at various airports of different size and traffic in the U.S.

General Aviation Airports and Resilience: Complete Toolkits for Self-Directed Planning In Reserve

The 2,455 General Aviation Airports in the U.S. provide essential services that are uniquely available through this type of airport. A Resilience Management Plan, although expensive to contract and complicated to create, may be critical to protecting the continuity of these services. This research project provides operators with the tools necessary to effectively and efficiently develop their own Resilience Management... more »

Research Projects

Planning and Design of Low Cost Carrier Terminals

Develop a guide for architects, planners and airport operators on planning and designing new low cost carrier (LCC) terminal or converting existing ones to better serve low cost carriers. Supplement existing terminal planning resources and guidelines while identifying key differences between LCC and full service terminals.

Develop Runway Design Guidelines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles In Reserve

Develop guidelines for the design of runway infrastructure to meet the unique needs of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The output of the research could be a guidebook to help practitioners design aviation facilities dedicated to safely and efficiently meet the operational requirements of UAVs of various sizes and configurations.

Implementation of Performance based Approach based on Emerging Test Methods to Formulate ASR Resistant Concrete Mixes

Based on extensive research supported by TxDOT and Bureau of Reclamation, two ASR test methods (i.e., a rapid aggregate chemical test called VCMD and an accelerated concrete cylinder test - ACCT) and a combined innovative approach with four recommended steps were developed for formulating performance-based alkali-silica reaction (ASR)–resistant concrete mixes. This performance based approach has a great potential to formulate... more »

Guidelines to Decentralize Curbside and Security to Alleviate Airport Congestion

Our team aims to architecturally and financially model new ways to relieve airport congestion through the expansion of the curbside, while also allowing for new programs to monetize the landside and the airside. Our team intends to develop architectural solutions for modifying airport parking garages, providing ride share lobbies and amenities, re-programming parking garages and surface lots for alternative uses, and... more »

Airport Best Practices for Progressive Design-Build Project Delivery

Progressive design-build (PDB) has proven to generate both time and cost savings on a number of major airport projects because its qualifications-based selection of the DB team, combined with a negotiated construction price reduces the time it takes airports to procure the DB contractor and reduces the contingencies buried in a typical DB lump sum price. An assembly of PDB best practices would provide the foundation for... more »

Validating Passenger Level of Service and Spatial Planning Criteria for Airport Terminals

Investigate if additional data can be collected by these new survey techniques: Develop preferred practices on how to use emerging mobile technologies to collect passenger level of service information in a minimally invasive manner and investigate if new techniques improve (or impede) passenger response rates. Other topics that could be covered include: using ethnographic data collection techniques to understand passenger... more »
