SWA Phoenix Jet Blast Deflector

New Deflector for Southwest Protects Building from Run-ups

Project Details

Location: Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
Phoenix, USA
Project: Phoenix Tech Ops Hangar Facility
Contractor: Hensel Phelps
Owner: Southwest Airlines
  • Thrust rating required extremely heavy-duty structure
  • Tight conformance to applicable regulations

This MRO project required a deflector rated for full power engine run-ups to be installed directly in front of a tall building. BDI undertook a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) study to determine what deflector geometry would provide the optimal degree of protection. The result is a safe work environment that allows engine run-ups to be carried out around the clock.
