AIRPORT CAPACITY INCREASING POTENTIAL OF ANGLED RUNWAY EXIT DESIGNS
This report presents the results of an investigation to determine the causes of low utilization of angled runway exits on air carrier airports, to identify feasible measures to increase their utilization and to assess the probable resultant increase in runway capacity. The areas considered included aircraft runway occupancy time and travel time influence factors including taxiway networks, landing and deceleration procedures, cornering acceleration constraints, approach profiles and present and possible improvements in future supportive equipment such as glide slope and approach control. No field data was collected.
