Lessons learned from the recent hurricanes

While there is existing guidance on emergency planning and business continuity for airport operation, the recent storms to hit the gulf and eastern coasts have presented different challenges in airport operations. The project would pull lessons learned from airports effected by the damages of the storms as well as external factors that may not be under airport control. examples: - Loss of NAVIADS - The airport has power ...more »

Operations

Airside planning, Design and operations: Electronic Resources Library

The objectives of this research project are to: • Create an electronic resources library – preferably a website. This searchable electronic library should provide an inventory of available publications including the abstracts and index of ACRP research documents and non-ACRP research documents related to airside planning, design and operations. • Recommend a process for keeping the website up-to-date. • Identify which ...more »

Maintenance

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 »

Functional Impairment Measurement Secondary to Cannabis/Marijuana Consumption: RRIPT

With 29 states having legal medicinal use of marijuana and nine having legal adult recreational use legal, marijuana and related impairment to function on the job, is a growing topic. Technology that can be used at any time to measure functional impairment is needed to supplement existing biologic measures. Urine does not detect immediate acute use as it takes hours to enter the system. Saliva only measures presence ...more »

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 »
