Characteristics of High-Speed Runway Exits for Airport Design (1992)

This paper addresses some of the geometric design and operational characteristics of high-speed runway exists. Lateral and longitudinal runway constraints limiting the use of high-speed runway exists are analyzed using continuous simulation. A series of design charts are presented in this paper to help airport planners in determining the suitability of high-speed turnoffs under realistic runway scenarios. A simple estimation of runway capacity gains is also presented to justify the preliminary feasibility of high-speed runway exits.
