Studio di sitizzazione aeroportuale mediante analisi multi-criterio
AbstractThis study aims at implementing the multi-criteria approach in the selection of the most suitable airport site in the province of Tuscia-Viterbo. After analysing 4 sites supposed feasible in principle, collecting data and other information on the different locations, the selection criteria have been defined as: proximity to urban settlements, logistic infrastructures, visibility and air manoeuvrability, investment costs, environmental constraints, geological suitability, flood risk, seismic risk. The Analytical Hierarchical Process (AHP) has been chosen as the most suitable methodology for selecting from pairwise comparison, the most appropriate site for the airport, considering all criteria put forward. At the end of the process, the best location comes out quite clearly as one site, which keeps at the top of the ranking, both in an eco-centric and anthropocentric vision. Not the same if we consider the whole ranking of the other sites, which differs quite substantially. All this shows the suitability of the AHP method and the software implemented in responding to the general socio-political context for choosing the most relevant site for a public work such as an airport.
