Pagination or Media Count:
The report documents a simulation model DELCAP designed to estimate airport throughputs and aircraft delays, taking into account their dependence on the traffic level and mix of user types, the airport configuration, and the separation rules in force. The model is implemented in two parts a user may elect instead of providing his own, and an event-oriented simulation model. The report includes a discussion of the elements in the airport system which are modeled, a description of the simulation models logic, and a set of sample outputs. Listings of the model programs, and a users guide to their operation, appear as appendices. Author
