Expanding in-place cold recycling for flexible airfield pavement

Cold In-place Recycling (CIR) and Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) are two economically and environmentally friendly methods of rehabilitating asphalt pavements. While there is a brief mention of FDR in FAA AC 150/5370-10H and AC 150/5320-6F, it is quite limited and there is no mention of CIR, therefore, this project looks to provide comprehensive guidance as to when CIR and FDR can be used, the materials that can be used,... more »

Understanding Airport Noise & Air Quality Baselines and Relationship to Operations

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a drastic reduction (in some cases over 95%) in air traffic operations at airports around the country. The only other time such extreme conditions occurred was after 9/11 (with three days of a total ground stop). The current situation presents an opportunity to collect significantly more data from a longer time period for both noise and air emissions to understand baselines, and the... more »
