STOCHASTIC MODELING OF AIRPORT PROCESSING--REGIONAL AIRPORT PASSENGER PROCESSING

The construction and validation of a mathematical airport model which can be used as a homework for the analysis of the processing activities of a regional airport in an aggregate manner was described. The model tends to be statistical because of the nature of processing at airport terminals. For design purposes, the models are tailored to fit into an interactive design process for airport terminals. Three main techniques are considered: analytical queueing theory, deterministic queueing theory and simulation. A limited set of queueing models of airport processing, both landside and airside activities, was developed. Empirical information obtained from airport surveys was used to validate the proposed model of passenger processing.
