      Bratu, Stephane ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
      A connecting passenger occupies a seat on each of the flight leg of his itinerary. Moreover, for a given fare class, the fare of a connecting passenger is lower than the sum of the fares of the local passengers on the ...
    • New directions for forecasting air travel passenger demand 

      Garvett, Donald Stephen; Taneja, Nawal K. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1974, 1974)
      While few will disagree that sound forecasts are an essential prerequisite to rational transportation planning and analysis, the making of these forecasts has become a complex problem with the broadening of the scope and ...
    • On the numerical solution of simultaneous, non-linear equations in computer-aided preliminary design 

      Kolb, Mark A. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1986, c1986)
      In the solution of problems in preliminary design, it often becomes necessary to solve systems of equations. An immediate example from aeronautical design is the frequent need to perform several iterations around the gross ...
    • Out-of-kilter flow (OKF) : user's guide 

      Levin, Amos; Ford, L. R. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1967, 1967)
      Section 1: The following few pages are from the book, "Flows in Networks" by Ford and Fulkerson, which is referenced in this report. After these few pages, the report itself commences. -- Section 2: This writeup is intended ...
    • Paper Airplane user's manual : version four 

      Lajoie, Ronnie M. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, Paper Airplane Project, c1987, c1987)
      Preface: This document provides the user with a step-by-step guide to using Paper Airplane, Version IV. Although this program can be used to design any system (once given the proper set of design equations), this manual ...
    • Papers from the MIT-industry Cooperative Research Program, 1989 : proceedings of the annual meeting held at MIT 

      Zabat, Grace Lyn Buenaventura.; Williamson, Elizabeth Louise.; Lee, Anthony Owen.; Kolb, Mark A.; Karlsson Joakim; e.a. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1989], 1989)
    • Parallel parametric combinatorial search : its application to runway scheduling 

      Trivizas, Dionyssios Anastasios (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1987], 1987)
      The Runway Scheduling Problem (RSP) addresses the fundamental issues of airport congestion and energy conservation. It is a variation of the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) from which it differs in three basic points: the ...
    • Pilot workload in the air transport environment : measurement, theory, and the influence of air traffic control 

      Katz, Jeffrey G. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
      The operating environment of an air transport crew is characterized by multiple interrupting tasks, these tasks being composed of a mixture of purely physical control and purely mental planning processes. Measurement of ...
    • Planning level decision support for the selection of robust configurations of airport passenger buildings 

      Svrcek, Tom (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1994], 1994)
      Prevalent in the current practice of airport design is the view of the airport as a "terminal", or beginning and ending point only of a traveler's journey. Such a perspective wrongly encourages the belief that airport ...
