Abstract:

This technical report is divided into two volumes. Volume I contains the technical analysis and weather effects on RRR process, while Appendix A, Weather Data, is published as Volume II because of its size. This report presents the results of a study to identify the effects of weather on Rapid Runway RepairRRR. There are two major components of the study. The first characterizes the aspects of weather that affect RRR, by area for Korea, Europe, and England. Graphs present data on temperature, precipitation, visibility, wind, and humidity. The second component studies the effects of weather on the RRR process. The process is divided into activities, with associated efficiencies under various weather conditions. Values for the efficiencies are developed from military and industrial data. The two components are combined with a critical path analysis of several RRR procedures. The report identifies potential solutions to some weather-related problems, and make recommendations for further study.
