Subsurface Drainage System Benefits in Airport Pavement Performance

This research would summarize the best of practices through survey of airports and consultants; evaluate the effectiveness of subsurface drainage configurations by investigating field performance of airport pavements with and without drainage features; quantify the cost and benefits of including subsurface drainage by comparing any potential extension in service-life with increased construction and maintenance costs; ...more »

Construction

Evaluating the Impact of Aircraft Lateral Turning Forces on Pavement Design and Performance

This research would help airports understand, qualify and quantify lateral shear forces within the surface or subsurface layers of flexible pavements induced by landing gear lateral turning movements; develop models to take the excessive lateral shear forces into consideration in the design of runway asphalt concrete surface layers; formulate recommendations to include shear resistant asphalt concrete layer (or sublayer) ...more »

Beauty and Meaning: How the Arts Can Serve Airports

Airports of all sizes have the potential to introduce more art experiences into the traveler space, but few know why they should care and how to accomplish this. Partnerships with arts associations, artists, civic cultural leaders and airports are few and poorly documented or understood. The objective of this research would be to: • Research benefits of integrating art experiences into travelers’ spaces at airports • ...more »

Air Passenger Values of Time and Qualitative Travel Attributes

The objective of the proposed research is to update and extend the estimated values of travel time savings determined in ACRP Project 03-19 and broaden the scope to include not only travel time savings but also other quantitative service attributes, such as walking distance, and the perceived values attributed by air passengers to improvements in qualitative levels of service, such as ride quality and comfort. One important ...more »
