Preschool, Engineering & Technology. The math behind the cost of your ticket - Asheville Regional Airport. Positioning systems improve airport logistics. An airport apron bustles with traffic.
The tow tractors, tankers and buses moving busily around an aircraft run the risk of colliding. An enhanced positioning system will increase safety and the efficiency of logistical operations in the future -- available airport capacities will be utilized better. Dense fog is hanging over an airport apron. Mathematics and Operations Research in Industry. By Dennis E.
Blumenfeld, Debra A. Elkins, and Jeffrey M. Alden Students majoring in mathematics might wonder whether they will ever use the mathematics they are learning, once they graduate and get a job. Is any of the analysis, calculus, algebra, numerical methods, combinatorics, math programming, etc. really going to be of value in the real world? The world's first solar-powered airport is no longer paying for electricity. Last year, we brought you news of the first airport in the world to run on 100 percent solar energy, and now Cochin International Airport in southern India has hit a major milestone: it's stopped paying for its electricity altogether, and actually contributes energy back to the grid thanks to the tens of thousands of solar panels spread across the site.
The first of those panels was installed three years ago, but it was only last year that Cochin Airport got serious about renewable energy, commissioning German firm Bosch to turn unused wasteland near one of the terminals into a huge solar power plant. Now that investment is finally starting to pay off. Listen to Live ATC (Air Traffic Control) Communications.
