Auckland Jet Blast Fence

Portable Deflectors for Runway Project in Auckland

Project Details

Location: Auckland International Airport
Auckland, New Zealand
Project: Runway Construction Deflectors
Owner: Auckland International Airport Ltd.
Challenges:
  • Adherence to strict aesthetic guidelines
  • Challenging site geometry
  • Thrust rating required extremely heavy-duty structure
  • Tight project planning

The Auckland International Airport required two types of portable jet blast deflectors for an important runway construction project. These deflectors protect the active worksite from jet blast created by departing aircraft. Due to challenging site constraints and the wide range of aircraft that frequent AKL, the project required the use of BDI‘s in-house CFD capabilities to validate the level of safety prior to acceptance.
