A POLYNOMIAL OPTIMISATION TECHNIQUE FOR IMPROVING THE VERTICAL ALIGNMENT OF AN EXISTING AIRPORT RUNWAY

The main elements of the problem are identified and a simplified flowchart is used to describe the computer system which contains 12 separate programs. Two typical cross sections with an exaggerated vertical scale are used to describe cross section optimization. Basic concepts of longitudinal section optimization are examined and the theory is developed. Limitations to the longitudinal optimization program are noted.
