Abstract:

An analysis of mobile-lounge traffic and servicevehicle traffic on the Dulles International Airport ramp is presented. Mathematical models were used that were developed under the previous phase of this contract and reported in Airport Runway, Taxiway, and Ramp Design. Vehicle operation and taxiing aircraft characteristics were observed at Idlewild Airport. The results of the analysis indicate that there will be no appreciable delays for either mobile lounge or other vehicular traffic in crossing the taxi lanes in the aircraft-parking ramp areas. In addition, it is recommended that a semi-automatic control system be considered for controlling the vehicular traffic crossing the aircraft-parking ramp area. A three-phase construction program is proposed to keep pace with the stages in the airports development. Author
