Unformatted text preview: CEE 4674: Airport Planning and Design Spring 2011 Assignment 2: Runway Length Analysis Problem 1 Design the appropriate runway length for a new airport to be located near a Mid-west metropolitan area. A survey of the existing demand at a nearby airport reveals a fleet mix shown in Table 1. The airport site is located at an elevation of 3,100 feet above sea level. Weather data collected over a period of 5 years at the proposed site, suggests a Mean Daily Maximum Temperature of the Hottest Month of Year to be around 80 deg. F. 1. Airport elevation > 3000 feet. Use 100% fleet and Figure 2-1 in FAA AC 150/5325-4b 2. 4,800 feet 3. Correct for grade and wet pavements considering limits of corrections as stipulated in the FAA advisory circular. 4.The design curve would be Figure 2-2 instead. 5. 5,100 feet at 100 degrees. Problem 2 Investigate the effect of airport elevation on runway length performance for small aircraft with reciprocating engines and fewer than 10 seats. Suppose that we want to design the runway length for an airport that serves 100% of the small fleet population....
