Airport Engineering Planning, Design, and Development of 21st Century Airports

Theory of Machines and Mechanisms

This fourth edition of Airport Engineering appears 18 years after its predecessor and in the interim very big and far-reaching changes have occurred in civil aviation. Security has been dramatically and irrecoverably tightened throughout the world, especially in the United States, since the 9/11 terrorist atrocities in the northeastern United States in 2001. Passenger facilitation has been revolutionized with the introduction of almost universal electronic ticketing and check-in procedures. The introduction of the A380 aircraft into service has heralded the arrival of what had, up to then, been termed the New Large Aircraft. The information technology (IT) revolution had a profound influence on air travel and the air transport industry. The widespread usage of the Internet has also permitted the rapid and broad publication of standards and recommended practices by the FAA and other regulatory bodies. The nature of civil aviation itself has changed with the evolution and proliferation of the low-cost carriers and the growth of this market. Moreover, air freight has grown considerably and now has a significant proportion of its traffic carried by the door-to-door service of the integrated carriers.
