VALIDATION OF AN AIRPORT SIMULATION MODEL

This paper describes the validation of an airport simulation model, called DELCAP for DELay CAPacity, the two quantities which it measures, for use in estimating the traffic rates attainable at major busy U.S. airports. The simulation model outputs are compared to those of other models for simple cases to which both apply and to actual throughput data for several airports, with differences usually less than 6 to 8 percent.
