In connection with a major expansion of the apron-gate area at San Francisco International Airport the number of aircraft gates will be increased from 56 to about 90. Two alternate plans were developed for increasing the number of gates. A computer-simulation approach was used for obtaining data regarding the performance of the two terminal schemes. The computer simulation was to provide information concerning the magnitude of aircraft delays, the cause of these delays, and lengths of the lines of waiting passengers. The results of the computer simulation were one of a number of factors which led to the selection of one of the two schemes being considered.
