CONCEPTS FOR ESTIMATING CAPACITY OF BASIC RUNWAY CONFIGURATIONS
One method of evaluating the impact of changes in the governing longitudinal separation standards on final approach is through the estimation of runway capacity. This paper presents concepts for such an estimation. The arrival stream is analyzed with respect to the applicable longitudinal separation standards, ATC system performance and the interactions with departures, if any, as governed by the appropriate ATC rules and procedures. Concepts are developed for arrival only, departure only, arrival/departure, dual-lane, and intersecting runway configurations. The revision updates the January 1976 version, primarily with respect to the detail of dealing with intersecting runway configurations.
