Reducing Air Safety Concerns

Tools

With more and more air planes crowding the skies, there is an increased safety concern at the nation's airports. The biggest issue is turbulence, caused by so many planes coming and going. Turbulence often forces scheduled flights to be delayed, and it can be dangerous for any plane crossing another flightpath. University of Houston Professor Fasle Hussein visited the Clarkson University Campus this week to discuss a project he is working on to reduce this safety concern. The project has not yet been tested in the real world. "we have simulated on the computer, and have come up with some possible ideas," Hussein said. "First we have to show it in some wind tunnel testing, and then in flight testing." Reducing near misses or delays due to turbulence will help speed up flights and ease congestion in the nation's skies, Hussein said.
