Models for Runway Capacity Analysis.
MITRE CORP MCLEAN VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The report examines a family of mathematical and simulation models for the calculation of single runway IFR capacity. With the basic statistical model one can calculate basic saturation capacity under arrival only and mixed arrivaldeparture operations. The analysis of less-than-saturation demand is extended by a simple queuing model, and of speed-class sequencing as a Markov process. Capacities for alternative runway configurations, levels of approach control system precision, and changes in aircraft separation standards are predicted. This analysis was used to compare alternative ways of increasing the IFR capacity of both single and parallel runways.
