Analyzing the structural cost, performance, and flexibility in the terminal design of Mumbai Airport
The British University in Dubai
The recent growth in the aviation industry has led to the highest necessity for the development in designing the airports. Statistics are available for a few airports, but there is no comprehensive base of information on how airport terminal buildings operate or the conditions their user experience. The major aim of this research is to design a framework for analyzing the performance, cost and flexibility in terminal design of airports; to do so the main studies has been done exploring factors affecting the management and functionality of airport terminals considering the different parameters and the effectiveness of the terminal and the key challenges in designing functional aspects of an efficient airport terminal. The contribution of this research work will help approach to develop an efficient framework to overcome the problems occurring in airport terminals. The research paradigm will be positivism, carried out scientifically in order to analyze the performance and flexibility of the airport terminal. SPSS software has been used for the descriptive and regression data analysis for interpretation; the analysis presents an elaborate picture of the findings; other statistic tools are also used. The conclusions are based on the analysis of data presented, suggestions are made for, and that can be analyzed, in coherence with the research objectives further if any. Hence, posit certain areas of research that can be further extended and broadened by other researchers in near future.
