An airport is comprised of a number of strongly interacting services, where the terminal building is the major interface between an airfield and other areas of an airport. Continuous & rapid changes required in airport space frame structure management to incorporate technological advancements clearly justify new design approaches to allow for short to long-term flexibility in airport terminal development. Sometimes, the term aerodrome is used which refers to the surface that is used for takeoff or landing purpose. The airport is an aerodrome that is owned & licensed by the responsible government organization, but the difference is that there are usually no minimum standards for a basic aerodrome, but airport terminal building has to be maintained to higher safety standards.
The Design Approach:
As long span structure architecture, the main objective of an airport terminal design is to provide smooth and efficient passenger movement. The design process of an airport terminal building involves the determination of optimal capacities for different areas of airport terminal, the uncertainty of future demand and the costs of expansion. Airport terminal design approach entails an appropriate recognition of the relationship between all interdependent activities to ensure smooth flow of operations and a high level of passenger satisfaction. The traditional concept of airport design and planning is typically driven by keeping in mind the long-term point forecast and many other important factors. Once forecasts have been finalized, airport planners focus on different strategies for accommodating the predicted levels of activity. The forthcoming design strategies of an airport terminal building could be defined after considering the following crucial factors:
- Forecasting traffic levels for peak hours
- Specification of level of service standards
- Flow analysis and determination of server and space
