Genre: Architecture

The annual number of airline passengers has continued to increase in the past decade, putting great strain on the airports. Increasing volumes of passengers and freight will continue making demands for expansion of airport facilities and construction of new airports. Traditionally airport design and airport operation have been treated separately, yet they are closely related and influence each other. Poor design adversely affects operation; sound understanding of operation is needed to enable good design.The aim of this book is to present a new and integrated approach to the two. This second edition includes some important changes in the international regulations covering design and operations. It reflects the greater attention being given to security, safety and the environment, together with changes in the technology and the way the air transport industry operates. New sections on collaborative decision making and low visibility operations strengthen the operational character of this book. Two completely new chapters have been added covering the topical problems of cargo and radio navigation aids and the chapter on passenger terminals has been enhanced considerably.

Airport passenger terminals have developed to be a major new public building-type representing transportation in the late twentieth century. The functional planning of facilities for aircraft and people, and the architectural forms to accommodate them, are of great interest to designers and the myriad of people who work in an visit airports. The book is a discourse rather than a design guide. It is written for an international readership and illustrated from the author's experience.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

The economic situation of the recent years forces to operate aircraft at highest payloads possible and to load it at its maximum allowable take-off masses. Therefore, take-off performance optimization is nowadays as important as never before. This book offers a summary of factors affecting the maximum take-off mass and appropriate take-off speeds, which together represent necessary performance data for a safe take-off. These are usually presented in so called runway analyses. That is the reason why this book might be of interest for fight operations engineering personnel or pilots as it answers possible questions about the application and computing of the runway analyses.
