Summary and Info
First published in 1979, Airport Engineering by Ashford and Wright, has become a classic textbook in the education of airport engineers and transportation planners. Over the past twenty years, construction of new airports in the US has waned as construction abroad boomed. This new edition of Airport Engineering will respond to this shift in the growth of airports globally, with a focus on the role of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), while still providing the best practices and tested fundamentals that have made the book successful for over 30 years.Content: Chapter 1 The Structure and Organization of Air Transport (pages 1–20): Chapter 2 Forecasting Air Transport Demand (pages 21–73): Chapter 3 Characteristics of Aircraft As They Affect Airports (pages 74–104): Chapter 4 Airport System Planning (pages 105–149): Chapter 5 Airport Master Planning (pages 150–178): Chapter 6 CNS/ATM (pages 179–233): Chapter 7 Airport Capacity (pages 234–296): Chapter 8 Airside Configuration and Geometric Design of the Airside (pages 297–350): Chapter 9 Safeguarding the Airport (pages 351–413): Chapter 10 Passenger Terminal (pages 414–456): Chapter 11 Air Cargo Facilities (pages 457–488): Chapter 12 Airport Drainage and Pavement Design (pages 489–542): Chapter 13 Airport Access (pages 543–572): Chapter 14 Heliports, STOLports, and Vertiports (pages 573–601): Chapter 15 Airport Modeling and Simulation (pages 602–658): Chapter 16 Airport City (pages 659–703): Chapter 17 Environmental Impacts of Airports (pages 704–738):
