Abstract:

At present, a number of separate maps, charts, and tables are required, and manual techniques are used to estimate construction effort and determine where facilities should be placed in an AOA. Present techniques are time consuming, which makes it difficult to optimize placement of facilities within operational constraints to minimize the construction effort and avoid relocation of facilities at a later time. A methodology is developed which is expected to reduce horizontal construction effort by 20 included are depictions of significant attributes of terrain, facilities, and their interrelations. The methodology was successfully exercised in a near-operational, MAF-size example. Automation of the methodology and of the construction effort computations to produce a computerized system is presently underway. Author
