This report documents exercises of the DELCAP airport terminal area simulation model performed to validate the maximum throughput calculations of that model. DELCAP was run for five different runway configurations, with three or four appropriate operating policies chosen for each, and for three different mixes of aircraft types. Throughput estimates from DELCAP are found to be in general agreement with current values provided by the FAA. One specific instance of greater discrepancy is identified, and a remedy for it is proposed. Changes made in DELCAP since its original documentation in 1971 are described in an appendix.
