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 »

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 »

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 Baggage Handling System Guide

To develop a comprehensive resource on Baggage Handling System (BHS) planning and design aimed at assisting airport planners, manufacturers and airport operators. The report will help planners and architects to design new BHS, expand or modify existing systems and provide improved operation and maintenance. The goal of the report should be to supplement existing design criteria including publications from TSA, IATA and ...more »

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.
