THE ALLOCATION OF AIRPORT CAPACITY WITH EMPHASIS ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

In this piece we provide an airport administration structure which is sensitive and amenable to control of today's problems. This structuring is the output of a nonlinear programming, constrained behavioral study of airport operation. By directly imposing noise, air pollution, and capacity constraints on the operation of a loosely modeled airport behavior pattern, we are able to infer an appropriate, functional administration structure for contemporary airport management. Utilizing nonlinear decomposition procedures we present a complete communication charting of an airport framework which is capable of efficient enforcement of environmental and capacity standards.
