To meet the rapidly growing demands for domestic and international air travel, civil (airport) engineers are going to face the challenging job of developing new airports and improving and strengthening the existing ones to increase their capacity. Authors collective experience as an educator in India and other countries suggests that real challenge facing engineers of today and tomorrow is of methodology, evaluation and choice. Engineers should therefore be investigative and analytical in planning, design and maintenance of airport facilities to meet the requirements of capacity and level of service. This book is written to meet above requirements and is based on latest recommendations of International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), Canada, and Federal Aviation Agency (FAA), U.S.A. It is organised in 18 chapters starting with historical developments and terminology to planning, design and maintenance of airport facilities including terminal, runway, taxiway, aprons and visual-aids. Chapters on Heliport, Vertiport, Stolport Drainage and Environmental Considerations are also included. This book is structured in such a way that examples and exercises form an integral part of the main text. Typical questions for practice and preparation for various competitive examinations are included in the end. Latest material used for writeup of various chapters of the book will also provide basis for postgraduate teaching and research work in airport engineering. This book will serve as a basic and stimulative learning and research tool for graduate and postgraduate students, teachers, and practising engineers involved in planning, design and maintenance of airport facilities.
