Low Carbon Airports: Toward a More Realistic, Cost-Effective, and Greener Ground Movement Through Active Routing—Part I: Optimal Speed Profile Generation

Chen, J. ; School of Engineering, University of Lincoln, Lincoln LN6 7TS, U.K. ; Weiszer, M. ; Stewart, P. ; Shabani, M. Among all airport operations, aircraft ground movement plays a key role in improving overall airport capacity as it links other airport operations. Moreover, ever-increasing air traffic, rising costs, and tighter environmental targets create […]

Abatement of an Aircraft Exhaust Plume Using Aerodynamic Baffles

The exhaust jet from a departing commercial aircraft will eventually rise buoyantly away from the ground; given the high thrust/power (i.e., momentum/buoyancy) ratio of modern aero-engines, however, this is a slow process, perhaps requiring ∼1 min or more. Supported by theoretical and wind tunnel modeling, we have experimented with an array of aerodynamic baffles on […]

The humble ‘virtual chimney’ fences that could reduce the impact of airport pollution

EPSRC Press Release Issue Date: Thursday 31st January, 2013 The humble ‘virtual chimney’ fences that could reduce the impact of airport pollution Simple ‘blast’ fences called baffles could deliver improvements in air quality for people living near airports, new research has found. Placed behind a runway, the baffles could serve as a ‘virtual chimney’, funnelling […]
