Abstract:

The report is divided into two major sections. The first describes an approach using modelling techniques by which airport snow removal and ice control systems may be evaluated on a cost-effectiveness basis, taking into account factors such as the following airport type, size and structure incidence of snow andor icing conditions volume and type of air traffic. As part of the study, a team visited nine representative airports in the United States to observe present day snow removal and ice control practices. The second section of the report discusses the technical characteristics of the equipment and systems observed, as well as the factors mentioned above.
