What Does an Airport Runway Look Like?

An airport runway is an outdoor area at the end of a runway that allows the aircraft to take off and land. This area serves as a traffic control center and generally contains traffic cones that prevent cars from getting through the area without permission.

Shape

Runways can be circular or triangular in shape. A circular runway has an outer perimeter and ends in a point that slopes inward. A triangular runway can curve in a variety of directions and ends in a point that is slightly higher than the actual terminal.

Prupose

In most cases, the owner of the land will use runways if the airport is located on a freeway. Runways are needed for both civil and military aircraft. Runways are often designed for the performance of aircraft that are used for commercial and private purposes. For military purposes, runways are designed specifically for specific types of aircraft.

Function

Runways serve a number of functions for both civil and military aircraft. Runways are often used to ensure landing and takeoff speeds and for preventing aircraft from hitting other planes or obstructing highways. Runways also serve to prevent aircraft from entering other traffic flow areas.

Construction

Runways are constructed of concrete, asphalt, or other materials. Runways are constructed of one to three layers of different materials and offer varying levels of protection against the elements. Runways have many barriers such as fences, lighting, air traffic controls, and tunnels that serve as the transportation system for vehicles during the time they are not in use.

Construction sites are sometimes designed with several levels of airport runways. The ramps that will take the aircraft to these different levels may be at different elevations and offer varying degrees of traffic volume. Runways are often constructed in a way that will allow vehicle traffic to pass through the runways during the time they are not in use.

Keep in Touch

Runways are often designed to be as tall as they can be without being too high for the aircraft that will be taking off and landing on them. Runways that are too short may be difficult to use because of the aircraft’s inability to gain enough altitude. Runways that are too tall may cause problems for aircraft that will be taking off and landing on them because the propellers may be unable to reach the proper altitude.

An airport runway is often the last thing a construction site looks at before it moves onto the next project. This type of runways is one of the most important things to get done during construction, so it is important to get it done right.
