Insight into Genaveh 11-29 runway geometric redesign based on meteorological synoptic data

Abstract : Wind information can provide an optimal estimate of the runway orientation by minimizing the crosswind component of the wind at airports, which severely affects aircraft take-off and landing performance. Additionally, a systematic geometric design requires information on wind speed, direction, duration, and specific information about latitude and longitude, temperature variation, and altitude of the airport site. In the present research, meteorological synoptic data has been precisely measured and collected over Genaveh unconstructed airport for a period of five years. Investigation of the gathered data leads to the selection of an optimal runway orientation using wind rose representation and other data analysis. Additionally, the required runway length has been estimated in order to be compatible with the standards and aircraft types considered to apply the Genaveh site. All analyses are executed for variation of temperature, altitude, landing, and takeoff situations. The results demonstrate that the previously considered orientation of the runway is considerably different from the optimal direction by at least 10 degrees. Moreover, a longer runway length is required to cope with the standards to reduce the risk of accidents in the presence of crosswinds
