The study estimates aircraft and passenger delays that will be encountered at 30 large terminals during the period 1976 through 2000. Delay estimates are prepared for two scenarios--(1) no change in existing runway capacity and (2) changes in future runway capacity resulting from the introduction of the Upgrated Third Generation Air Traffic Control System (UG3RD). Delay estimates were obtained from application of a deterministic, steady state runway queuing model. Results of this research were incorporated in a cost-benefit analysis of the UG3RD ATC system.
