Virginia Tech 2 Methodologies to Assess Airport Capacity The capacity of an airport is a complex issue. Several elements of the airport facility have to be examined. Namely: a) Airside and b) Landside components. Access Road Airside Landside Runway Terminal Runway Taxiways Gates

Virginia Tech 4 Methodologies to Study Airport Capacity/ Delay Analytic models - Easier and faster to execute - Good for preliminary airport/airspace planning (when demand function is uncertain) - Results are generally less accurate but appropriate Simulation-based models - Require more work to execute - Good for detailed assessment of existing facilities - Results are more accurate and microscopic in nature

Virginia Tech 6 Time-Space Analysis A solid and simple technique to assess runway and airspace capacity if the headway between aircraft is known The basic idea is to estimate an expected headway, E(h) , and then estimate capacity as the inverse of the expected headway is expressed in time units (e.g., seconds) Capacity 1 Eh () ----------- =

Virginia Tech 10 Possible Outcomes of a Single Runway Time- Space Diagram Since aircraft approaching a runway arrive in a random pattern we distinguish between two possible scenarios: Opening Case - Instance when the approach speed of lead aircraft is higher than trailing aircraft ( ) Closing case - Instance when the approach of the lead aircraft is less than that of the trailing aircraft ( ) V i V j > V i V j
