AIRPORT TANGLE: THE KNOTS ARE ON THE GROUND

This comprehensive look at the country's airports reveals that larger, quieter planes are carrying more passengers at one time and are reducing complaints about noise pollution. But the jumbo jets transfer the tangle to the ground. Despite the crunch of increased passenger traffic, only one major airport is scheduled for construction during the next decade and even that is only a possibility. The multitude of problems caused by burgeoning traffic presents a design problem of exacting proportions to consulting engineers. The latest solutions presented here enable some forecasts to be made about the future. /Consulting Engineer/
