CEE 4674 A9 Trani Page 1 of 4 CEE 4674: Airport Planning and Design Spring 2009 Assignment 8 Date Due: Instructor: Trani Problem 1 An airport has two satellite concourses separated by an above ground connector as shown in Figure 1. Figure 1. Airport Configuration. The peak flow of passengers per hour (both ways) is expected to be 6,000 passengers per hour. a) Find the dimensions (width and length) of the corridor to support the highest Level of Service B standard. The analysis for the corridor requires the use of the standard level of service pedestrian flow equation. The paek demand is 6,000 passengers per hour or 100 pedestrians per minute. The highest level of service B implies 7 pedestrians per minute/foot (see Table below). The total corridor width adding two boundary layers of 2 feet each is then 100/7 + 2(2) = ~ 1 9 feet. b) Plot the capacity curve (capacity vs. headway) for an automated people mover (APM) designed to satisfy 1.5 times the peak demand condition stated in problem (a). Assume the capacity per vehicle is 40 passengers and that up to 3 vehicles can make up a transit unit. Assume that the minimum headway for design purposes is 45 seconds.
