FOD Characterization Report at Large Airports
Between 20 July 2011 and 8 May 2013, the University of Illinois Center of Excellence for Airport Technology (CEAT) conducted extensive research into the origins of FOD on runways at major airports, including the types and sizes of the FOD collected.
This report was released to the public in February of 2015.
The study was conducted at Chicago O'Hare Airport (ORD) on seven runways of various lengths ranging from 7,500ft to 13,000ft using three main methods of FOD removal, The FOD*BOSS Sweeping system, magnetic bars and manual labour (mostly used beside runways on grassed areas).
