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 »

Construction

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.

Estimating the Cost of Hazardous Waste Material Removal for Airport Construction Projects

To develop a comprehensive resource on the safe handling and cost effective removal of hazardous waste material during airports projects. The report will examine ways to identify the waste, evaluate its impact on environment, construction cost and schedule. The report will augment existing industry standard guidelines established by EPA.

Guidebook for Airports to Enhance/Support FAA Trajectory Based Operations (TBO)

The FAA’s “Vision for Trajectory Based Operations”, Version 2.0 dated September 2017, states that TBO will leverage NextGen improvements to make flight operations more efficient and predictable: “TBO in 2025 depends upon use of improved data sets and greater collaboration between the FAA and its customers to enable better traffic planning and scheduling decisions. Improved data sets reflect access to new data elements, ...more »

Design

Intersecting Runways - Best Practices for Grade Design

FAA design guidance regarding grade issues for intersecting runways leaves a fair amount of discretion to the design engineer. This topic will seek to provide additional guidance regarding gradient requirements and best practices.

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 »
