  1. FAAAirport Technology Research & Development Program Air Transport Committee ASCE National Capitol Section March 22, 2005

  2. FAA Airport Technology Research & Development Airport Pavement Technology National Airport Pavement Test Facility Non-Destructive Testing New Pavement Materials Airport Wildlife Hazard Abatement Runway Surface Technology Airport Planning Technology Visual Guidance & Airport Markings Airport Rescue & Firefighting Technology

  3. Airport Wildlife Hazards Who is cleared for takeoff???

  4. “Departure” “Taxiing” “Takeoff”

  5. ? RadarCalibration ?

  6. WARNING!!! Duck Before Crossing Runway

  7. Runway Surface Technology

  8. Pilot – “When did they put a highway here?”

  9. Overrun at Burbank “Jet-A Please”

  10. Who Said Concrete Is Heavy?

  11. Overrun at JFK

  12. Visual Guidance & Paint Markings Eat More Chicken!!!

  13. New Technology Old Technology

  14. Do you know where you are?

  15. Oops!!!

  16. Airport Rescue & Firefighting Technology Tilt Table Testing

  17. The Shape Of Things To Come

  18. Max Slide Length – 55.45 ft

  19. Why We Need Stronger Pavement?

  20. Airport Pavement

  21. BWB Aircraft Can you count the wheels?

  22. Development of Advanced Airport Pavement Design Procedures ADVANCED DESIGN PROCEDURES 2006 PERFORMANCE/ FAILURE MODELS 2004 BETA Testing 2002 ADVANCED MATERIAL MODELS NEW STRUCTURAL MODELS 2000 1998 LEDFAA 1.2 (AC 150/5320-6) NATIONAL AIRPORT PAVEMENT TEST FACILITY Center of Excellence 1996

  23. Advanced Airport Pavement Design Project Benefits • Potential capital costs avoided. • Avoid restricting loads of air carriers. • Avoid unnecessary strengthening of existing pavements and structures. • Avoid cost of delays. • $1.7 billion of capital costs avoided over the next several years.

  24. National Airport Pavement Test Facility (NAPTF) Required For: • FAA design procedures for multiple-wheel landing gears, flexible and rigid • precipitated by B-777 6-wheel • NLA (A380, B-747 Stretches) • Aircraft design (number of wheels, number of gears, configuration - NLA and HSCT) • ICAO ACN-PCN

  25. Who • FAA / Boeing Cooperative R&D Agreement • Funding and Technical Specifications • Management Board • Advisory Working Group • Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District • Design Build Contract Administration • DMJM/Cornell • Design Build Contractor

  26. Working Group Representation • FAA and Boeing • University of Illinois FAA Center of Excellence • US Army, Air Force, and Navy • ACPA, Asphalt Institute • Canadian, French, Australian Government • PANY&NJ, BAA, ADP, Narita • Visitors

  27. When January, 1992 October, 1992 July, 1993 October, 1993 May, 1995 June, 1996 April, 1999 October, 1999 • AAS requirements meeting • First AAR W.G. meeting • Brochure • Design and Cost Study • RFP • Contract awarded • Completed (handover) • Response tests completed

  28. How • Design / Build Contract • DMJM / Cornell Joint Venture • Weidlinger for foundations • CTL for pavement instrumentation • Cornell and Design Projects for test vehicle • ARA for pavement design (except thickness) • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, for project management

  29. How Much • $21 million total contract • $14 million - FAA • $7 million - Boeing Commercial Airplane Co. • $1 to $3 million continuing annual costs (depending on pavement reconstruction) provided by FAA

  30. NAPTF

  31. Aerial View During Construction

  32. Trafficking Rigid Pavement

  33. Trafficking a Severely Rutted Flexible Pavement

  34. Fun For Some…..Data For Others

  35. Trench in CC3-LFC2 Upheaval
