Abstract
Stanford Airport/Biggerstaff Field is pursuing construction of additional airplane storage and parking to increase airport revenue. To accomplish this, new taxi lanes are required to provide locations for future hangars and aprons. Robert Peccia and Associates (RPA) approached the Carroll College Senior Engineering Design class to create a detailed location and pavement design analysis. This project is located just south of the town of Stanford Montana. Currently our team has determined the location and layout of the taxi lanes by evaluating different location alternatives and comparing cost analyses at each location. Economical, societal, and environmental aspects of each design were considered and classified to determine the best design for each of these concerns. The selected location requires minimum demolition of existing structures and also creates the least unnecessary runway traffic. To complete the design, we must produce cost-effective and useful pavement design as well as provide detailed engineering drawings to ensure accurate construction of the project. To complete this, we used the FAA-approved pavement design software, FAARFIELD, as well as Autodesk products to create high-quality, professional engineering designs. Using the work completed last semester as well as the skills and software necessary to complete this semester, we created and will present a robust engineering design of the Stanford Airport taxi lanes that is cost-effective, feasible, ethical, and satisfies the needs of the project owners.
