Optimizing Airfield Snow Removal

"The objective of this project is to research best practices focused on managing the resources at airports to optimize the number of runways and taxiways that can be kept open during winter storms. The guidelines should include using process optimization to reduce variation caused by unpredictable weather events and computer simulation analyses to optimize the number of equipment needed, resources required, and optimize... 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 »

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 »
