Improving the Durability of Concrete Pavement Surfaces through Improved Specifications and Testing

The objective of this research is to provide recommended improvements to the current P-501 specification along with recommendations for improved paving practices to enhance or insure the durability of the concrete surface. This project will identify major airports that are experiencing durability issues, measure the scale of the issue through field inspections, and conduct a petrographic examination of the concrete materials. ...more »

Consequences of Delayed Maintenance of Airport Assets

This research project will present a process for quantifying the consequences of delayed maintenance of airport assets. It will cover asset preservation policies, maintenance and budget needs, and the analyses of delayed maintenance scenarios. This process considers delayed maintenance caused by the inability to meet the owner-defined application schedule or the unavailability of the funds required to perform all needed ...more »

Effective Removal and Temporary Application of Airfield Pavement Markings

The objective is to determine best practices for the safe, cost-effective, and environmentally acceptable removal of existing markings and application of temporary markings on aviation pavement. Behind the idea, the output should address the following questions: • How much removal is adequate to prevent confusion in the cockpit? • How much tolerance is there for altering the pavement surface? • Are there mechanical ...more »

Construction

Selection and Application of Building Materials for Passenger Terminals

To create a comprehensive resource for architects, interior designers, engineers and airport operators to help them in selection of these materials for new construction or renovation of existing facilities. The guidebook should also provide guidance to airport operators and designers on how to evaluate life cycle cost implications of selecting different building materials.

Airport Incubators

How can airports set up incubators unit to create a space for innovators to solve airport problems based on challenges placed on them from different departments? Then, using the resulting solution, partner (in terms of equity) with the innovators, help them form companies that the airport would be. Partner on in terms of the laboratory for the solutions, then market to other airports.
