Man-Made Island Airport, Japan
Abstract:The number of international passengers and the volume of freight passing through Japan have more than doubled in the past 10 years. Even greater increases are projected for the future. It is estimated that both passenger and freight traffic in Japan will double the 1989 levels by the year 2000. The nation's airport capacity, however, has not been developed sufficiently to meet this demand. In the summer of 1994, a major new international airport will open 5 km offshore in Osaka Bay. The Kansai International Airport (KIA) will make Osaka an international and domestic air traffic hub. Its offshore location will permit Japan's first round-the-clock airport with operations unrestricted by problems of noise pollution.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
SEI is printed in Switzerland; ISSN 1016-8664; E-ISSN 1683-0350
