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 ...
A Dynamic Programming approach to the Aircraft Sequencing problem
(Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, , 1978)
In this report, a number of Dynamic Programming algorithms for three versions of the Aircraft Sequencing problem are developed. In these, two alternative objectives are considered: How to land all of a prescribed set of ...
Some measures of aircraft performance on the airport surface
(Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, , 1972)
During the month of January, a survey was conducted at Boston and Atlanta Airports to obtain input data for an interactive computer simulation of runway and taxiway traffic being developed by Lincoln Laboratory. Data was ...
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). ...
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 ...
