Abstract:

This thesis studied the problems of ramp space congestion at a notational aerial port of debarkation APOD for three tonnage arrival rates. Parking was constrained at the APOD to simulate the competition of ramp space by various air missions. This thesis studied the level of aircraft diversions and delays over a range of tonnage arrival rates from 500 to 1,500 tons per day. Parking was constrained to equivalent levels of 500 to 1,500 tons per day. Observations were taken at all combinations of parking and arrival rates. Results indicated parking utilization and aircraft arrival rates were strongly correlated with aircraft diversion rates. Keywords Airfield congestion, Airlift parking congestion, and Air terminals.
