  • Aircraft turning on the runway: how fast can they go?
    02 November 2016
    Planes don’t make money when they’re not in the air, so airlines want to know how fast they can move their passenger jets when they’re on the ground. But airliners’ tricycle design isn’t made for efficiency on the tarmac, and that’s where Professor Bernd Krauskopf’s mathematical modelling is providing valuable insights.
