Special Frangible Support Structures
As we all know living in the real world presents all manner of different circumstances whether easy or difficult and the is true of frangible support structures and it implementation in airport environments.
Namely the key issues are, Railways lines, Motorways or carriageways, Rivers, Undulating ground levels, Existing building structures etc coupled with extreme weather conditions. Not to mention the operational issues such as aircraft jet blast, performance take offs and abortive landings all play their part on influencing the designs of our structures.
Special mast designs whilst complying with strict regulations these frangible support structures must assure frangibility under impact and be of low mass.
