Reports and papers presented at the Conference on Airport Landside Capacity are contained in this publication. These reports and papers address the following issues: (1) identification and measurement of levels of service and capacity of airport landside elements; (2) providing and managing airport landside capacity; (3) constraints and their impacts on airport landside capacity; (4) influence of airside and off-airport factors on landside capacity; and (5) alternative methods for providing landside capacity at existing sites. Conference participants represented all groups and agencies that are in some way involved in airport landside operations.

Passenger carrying submersibles : system safety analysis by W. T Hathaway( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past few years, several private companies have been using passenger carrying submersibles to conduct underwater sightseeing tours for tourists. For submersible operations under U.S. jurisdiction, the Coast Guard is required by law to establish and enforce a certain minimum level of safety for vessels. The existing Coast Guard statutes and regulations were developed primarily for surface craft; many of the requirements cannot be applied to or are inappropriate for application to submersibles. Furthermore, for passenger carrying submersibles, the complexity and new concepts employed require that the Coast Guard develop methods to adequately evaluate their safety. This report presents the results of the system safety analysis conducted to identify and assess the hazards associated with the operation of passenger carrying submersibles. Included in this analysis is the definition of the submersible system in terms of the basic system elements: equipment and facilities, procedures, people, and the environment in which the submersible system operates. Hazard identification is accomplished through the creation of accident scenarios, the conduct of a Preliminary Hazard Analysis, and the development of Fault Trees. Finally, undesired events resulting from the hazards are assessed for event severity and the probability of event occurrence. General countermeasures to mitigate the undesired events are presented and the factors to be considered in the evaluation of the countermeasures are delineated. Keywords: Submersible safety; System safety; Passenger carrying submersibles; Submarines; Submersible hazards; Passenger submarines; Underwater tour safety. (SDW)

Structural integrity of aging airplanes by Satya N Atluri( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergence of civil aviation as a means of mass transportation is primarily due to the largescale construction of jet airplanes in the past 30 years or so. A large number of these jet airplanes is currently operating at or beyond their designed fatigue lives. Thus, the structural integrity of these aging airplanes has become an issue of major concern to all nations of the world. To bring the needed technical and research focus on the issues involved in the life-enhancement and safety-assurance of aging airplanes, the Federal Aviation Administration sponsored a symposium in Atlanta, GA, USA, during 20-22 March 1990. Industrial and academic experts from several countries in North America, Europe and Asia, were invited to discuss their experiences and proposed solutions. This monograph contains the original papers that represent the expanded and edited versions of the talks presented at this symposium. It aims to bring the collective experience, from across the world, with problems related to the structural integrity of aging airplanes to the attention of the professional and research community at large - in the hope that it may stimulate further fruitful research on this important topic of global concern
