COWI employs software showing the path of all parts of different types of aircraft enabling us to secure that all requirements of ICAO will be met when designing runways, taxiways and aprons. In order to accommodate different aircraft mixes, flexible aircraft stands have been introduced to minimise the length of building facades and thereby to reduce initial and future cost.
The design of airport civil works requires the knowledge of pavement specialists due to the load configurations and extreme loads that the pavement is exposed to from the heavy aircraft in different climatic conditions ranging from extreme cold weather in the arctic to hot weather in the tropics. At the same time, certain parts of the pavement are exposed to fully loaded aircraft at slow speed and other parts only to occasional passes of service vehicles.
These technologies may provide savings of 20-40 percent compared to traditional rehabilitation methods.
