Airport quotas and peak hour pricing : theory and practice
(Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, , 1976)
This report examines the leading theoretical studies not only of airport peak-hour pricing but also of the congestion costs associated with airport delays and presents a consistent formulation of both. The report also ...
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 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 ...
An economic analysis of the determination of congestion tolls at commercial airports
(Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, , 1976)
This report examines the problem of determining runway fees at major commercial airports when the objective is the maximization of social benefits. Unlike most of the analytical work that has been performed to date, the ...
