Raw data (Aircraft technical sheets)
Raw data (Technical sheets of the aircraft categories used in the study). In this study, we are evaluating the functionality of Engineered Materials Arrestor System (EMAS) as one possible mitigation strategy to reduce the possible consequences of landing overrun accidents. In this regard, one comprehensive MATLAB® numerical code was developed in which different aircraft parameters, EMAS geometry and material properties are analyzed as the given boundary conditions. The outputs could significantly influence the airport design, operating scenarios, regulations, emergency planning and risk management techniques and safety procedures. A risk contour map overlapped on the EMAS layout is developed to calculate the percentage of risk. The contour map assigns different probability of aircraft stoppage location to related coordinates on the arrestor bed for five different arrestor bed materials consist of three low-density concretes with different crushing strengths, gravel and foam aggregate, while the material’s crushing strength and their behavior under heavy loads are the main under investigation aspects.
