This report documents exercises of the DELCAP airport simulation model performed to validate the outputs delay and capacity of that model. Airport throughput levels were calculated by DELCAP for five runway configurations, with three or four appropriate operating policies chosen for each, and for three different mixes of aircraft types. These estimates from DELCAP agreed well, generally within 6 to 8 percent, with current values provided by the FAA. An attempt at validating DELCAPs delay-figure output, using existing data on scheduled and actual times of aircraft departures and arrivals, is also reported. Appendices contain program listing, flowcharts, descriptions of program changes from earlier versions, and user instructions for the models operation.
