An advanced time-dependent queueing model for airport delay analysis
(Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, , 1979)
Introduction: In the past several years many attempts have been made to model the probabilistic nature of airport runway operations using a queueing-theoretic approach to runway modeling. Early studies were limited by ...
The dynamic scheduling of aircraft in the near terminal area
(Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, , 1976)
Aircraft arrive in a random fashion into a terminal area seeking to land at a given runway. The aircraft are differentiated by their landing velocities. All aircraft are required to maintain a prespecified minimum horizontal ...
Review and evaluation of national airspace system models
(Cambridge, MA : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology ; 1979, 1979)
Abstract from Technical Report Documentation Page: This report is intended to serve as a guide to the availability and capability of state-of-the-art analytical and simulation models of the National Airspace System (NAS). ...
A computer simulation of Tampa International Airport's landside terminal and shuttles
(Cambridge : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1976, 1976)
TOPSIM, a terminal simulation package developed at M.I.T., was used to simulate Tampa's landside terminal and to study its capacity-congestion characteristics as traffic levels increase. Tampa has no congestion problems ...
Time dependent estimates of delays and delay costs at major airports
(Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1975, 1975)
Two queuing models appropriate for estimating time dependent delays and delay costs at major airports are reviewed. The models use the demand and capacity profiles at any given airport as well as the number of runways there ...
