The paper reviews the 26 “landing on the taxiway” cases happened between 1982 and 2016 recorded by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) aviation accident/incident database, it evaluates causal and contributing factors such as visibility, navigation, preparation, fatigue, experiences, age and more affecting pilots’ operations. Also,...

This paper reports on our efforts to determine if the ubiquitous term safety data can be more specifically defined. That is, whether data can be categorized as safety data based on some unique characteristics such that other data not having these would be categorized as not safety data. FAA analysts rely on multiple sources of objective data for...

Students enrolled in a capstone aerospace class participated in this study. The class involves the completion of simulations in a high-fidelity replication of an airline flight operations center called the FOCUS ((Flight Operations Center- Unified Simulation) lab. This lab also functions as a research center exploring individual and team-related...

Weather-related accidents contribute to general aviation fatal accidents each year. These accidents continue to occur even with advancements in weather information technology available in cockpit display technology and mobile applications. The purpose of this session is to highlight a body of on-going human factors research addressing examining...

While vivid virtual reality (VR) environments may afford better performance for some flight tasks, it is possible that enhanced stimuli could overload some cognitive resources. Prospective memory (PM) is a cognitive factor sensitive to working memory and visual processing demands, and it may be a performance factor either adversely affected or...

This paper describes work towards developing a meta-model useful in the design and specification of Human-Agent Teams. The meta-model adapts components from the cognitive systems, human factors, software and systems engineering literature to form a model and language which can be applied early in the system design process. The resulting model...

Runway incursions occur when an unauthorized aircraft, vehicle or pedestrian operates on a runway. While most incursions are near-misses, they have the potential of turning into fatal accidents such as the Tenerife accident. Despite various efforts to reduce runway incursions, the number of incursions has been increasing. Learning from past...

Perceptual speed is an important attribute for success as a pilot and has been assessed in many pilot selection batteries. The Tabular Speed Test (TST), a paper-and-pencil test of perceptual speed, was administered to 227 ab initio pilots and 152 licensed pilots who applied for employment at a large European airline. The airline had a multi...

Emerging computing applications (such as big-data and Internet-of-things) are extremely demanding in terms of storage, energy and computational efficiency, while today’s architectures and device technologies are facing major challenges making them incapable to meet these demands. Computation-in-Memory (CIM) architecture based on memristive...

Health literacy, i.e. the ability to read and understand medical text, is a relevant component of public health. Unfortunately, many medical texts are hard to grasp by the general population as they are targeted at highly-skilled professionals and use complex language and domain-specific terms. Here, automatic text simplification making text...

This paper presents the design of an ultra-low energy, rakeness-based compressed sensing (CS) system that utilizes time-mode (TM) signal processing (TMSP). To realize TM CS operation, the presented implementation makes use of monostable multivibrator based analog-to-time converters, fixed-width pulse generators, basic digital gates and an...

Street-level imagery contains a variety of visual information about the facades of Points of Interest (POIs). In addition to general mor- phological features, signs on the facades of, primarily, business-related POIs could be a valuable source of information about the type and iden- tity of a POI. Recent advancements in computer vision could...

The dynamic interaction of two planar and asymmetric shock waves at a free-stream Mach number M¥ = 3 is studied numerically in order to characterize the transition between the regular (RI) and Mach (MI) interaction patterns. Shock deflection disturbances are independently introduced in the form of a sinusoidal oscillation of the shock generator....

The unsteadiness of shock wave-boundary layer interactions is investigated in a transitional backward-facing step flow at Ma=1:7 and Red0 =13718 using large eddy simulation. The mean and instantaneous flow shows that the laminar inflow undergoes a laminar-to-turbulence transition in which Kelvin-Helmholtz vortices form, distort and eventually...

An experimental investigation of shock-shock interactions has been conducted with the aim of studying the transition between Regular (RI) and Mach (MI) interactions induced by a variation of the inflow Mach number. The experiments were conducted in the TST-27 wind tunnel at Delft University of Technology. For all cases, the wind tunnel runs were...

Metallurgical attributes are often omitted from the mine to metal valuation models since they are either absent or unreliable. However, recent developments in sensor technology indicate the potential to collect information on metallurgical properties directly or by measurement of proxies. Integrating this information back into the resource model...

Boundary layer instabilities and the formation of coherent spiral vortices over a rotating cone and ellipsoid are studied experimentally. It is found that under a non-axial inflow, the breaking of symmetry in the flow field significantly disturbs the coherence and delays the formation of spiral vortices to higher local Reynolds numbers (Re_l)...

Because of modern societies' dependence on industrial control systems, adequate response to system failures is essential. In order to take appropriate measures, it is crucial for operators to be able to distinguish between intentional attacks and accidental technical failures. However, adequate decision support for this matter is lacking. In...

In order to meet emission targets for 2050 in Europe transport needs to be executed more 2 efficiently. A promising way to make transport more efficient is synchromodal transport. When the 3 service provider has more flexibility to arrange transport, the utilization and use of intermodal transport, 4 such as rail, can be increased and emissions...
