Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 2

According to ICAO recommendations, what is the rate of elevation correction "for the runway length above MSL?

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 2

7% per 300m rise in elevation above MSL

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 3

What does the Wind Rose Diagram (WRD) for orientation of airport runway give?

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 3

Type-I wind rose diagram shows direction and duration of wind. Type-ll wind rose diagram shows direction, duration and intensity of wind,

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 4

Which one of the following statements is correct? Compared to IFR conditions, the runaway capacity of a runway operating under VFR conditions:

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 4

Under the conditions of Visual Flight Rules (VFR), the single runway can handle about 45 to 60 operations per hour. For Instrument Flight Rules (IFR), the capacity of single runway is reduced to about 20 to 40 operations per hours.

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 5

As per ICAO recommendation, minimum width of safety area for instrumental runway should be

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 6

As per ICAO for A, B and C type of airports, maximum effective, transverse and longitudinal grades in percentage respectively are

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 7

The capacity of a gate which is available to all classes of aircraft as per details given in table will be

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 7

Since each gate is available for all air-crafts. The gate capacity for a single gate is given by,

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 8

The capacity of parallel runway pattern depends upon

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 9

If the monthly mean of average daily temperature for the hottest month of the year is 25°C and the monthly mean.of the maximum daily temperature of the same month of the year is 46ºC, the airport reference temperature is

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 9

This is given by,

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 10

Consider the following statements regarding ICAO recommendation for correction to basic runway length
1. The basic runway length should be increased at the rate of 7 percent per 300 m rise in elevation above the mean sea level.
2. The basic runway length after having been corrected for elevation should be further increased at the rate of 1 percent for every 1°C rise in airport reference temperature above the standard atmospheric temperature at that elevation.
3. The runway length after having been corrected for elevation and temperature should be further 1 percent of effective gradient.
Which of these statements is/are correct? .

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 10

ICAO does not recommend any specific correction for the gradient. Correction for gradient in (c) is as per FAA recommendation.

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 11

The total length of a runway is 1000 m. The elevation at distance, 0, 200 m, 400 m, 600 m, 800 m and 1000 m are 100.0 m, 101.0 m respectively. The effective gradient of runway will be

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 11

Effective gradient of runway is defined as the maximum difference in elevation between the highest and lowest points on runway divided by total length of runway. So it is given by,

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 12

The length of runway under standard conditions is 2000 m. The elevation of airport site is 300 m. Its reference temperature is 33.05°C. if the runway is to be constructed with an effective gradient of 0.25 percent, the correct runway length will be

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 12

Correction for elevation

Corrected length
= 2000 + 140 = 2140 m
Standard atmospheric temp at given elevation
= 15 - 0.0065 x 300 = 13.05°C
Correction for temperature

Corrected.Jength = 2140 + 428 = 2568 m 
Correction for gradient

Corrected length
= 2568 + 128.4 = 2696.4 m = 2700 m

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 13

As per ICAO, the minimum basic runway length for A and E type of airport will be

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 13

The minimum basic length for B, C and D types of airport are 1500 m, 900 m and 750 m respectively.

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 14

Zero fuel weight of an aircraft is

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 15

The cruising speed for the aircraft is 500 kmph. If there is a head wind of 50 kmph, then the air speed and ground speed of the aircraft respectively will be

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 15

Ground speed is same as cruising speed and it is the speed of aircraft wrt ground. Air speed is the speed of aircraft relative to wind.

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 16

Calm period is the percentage of time during which wind intensity is less than

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 17

For determining the basic runway length, the landing case requires that aircraft should come to a stop within p% of the landing distance. The value of p is

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 18

According to ICAO, all markings on the runways are

Detailed Solution for Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 18

Ail marking on taxiway are yellow.

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 19

The width and interval of transverse centre line bars along the extended centre line of runway, in approach lighting system are

Test: Airport Engineering - 3 - Question 20

In Instrumental landing system, the middle markers are located
