Details

Chapter One summarizes research on the seismic performance of air traffic control (ATC) towers, discusses their shortcomings and puts forward recommendations for future studies. Chapter Two covers the construction of an airport for the capital of Germany that has an erratic history dating back to the early nineties. During the long planning period, the employment impacts of a major airport played an important role in the public dialogue. This chapter sets out how a scenario technique was used to calculate employment effects related to this major airport project. Chapter Three analyzes airport security in the Czech Republic regarding the Safety Risk Management (SRM) setting including the Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) with respect to economic aspects of the issue. The chapter also includes statistical backstage pointing to the topicality of this issue. Chapter Four uses the case of Atlanta Hartsfield/Jackson International Airport (ATL) to illustrate the links between airport capacity management and passenger satisfaction measured as airlines’ on-time performance. Chapter Five covers the potential benefits from using Linked Data technologies in emergency scenarios and presents the authors’ applications for improved emergency response. (Imprint: Nova)
