AN EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVE TERMINAL DESIGNS FOR AIRPORTS

This thesis is a study of terminal design and their impact on the service provided to the passenger. A GPSS simulation was written to evaluate terminal configuration concepts. This model was given the capability of simulating most known designs. Three designs were selected for specific evaluation in this thesis - finger pier, mobile lounge, and gate arrival types. The two basic level of service variables used were path times and walking distance.
