USER DELAY COST MODEL AND FACILITIES MAINTENANCE COST MODEL FOR A TERMINAL CONTROL AREA. VOLUME II. USER'S MANUAL AND PROGRAM DOCUMENTATION FOR THE USER DELAY COST MODEL

The User Delay Cost Model (UDCM) is a Monte Carlo simulation of certain classes of movement of air traffic in the Boston Terminal Control Area (TCA). It incorporates a weather module, an aircraft generation module, a facilities module, and an air control module to simulate delays, resulting from facility outage, imposed on four user classes: Air Carrier, Air Taxi, General Aviation, and Military Aircraft. The model can also be used to measure delays due to changing aircraft arrival rates, weather and other environmental considerations, approach types available, or any other factor that affects trail separation in final approach of the maximum number of aircraft an air controller can handle. This is the second of three volumes. Volume I documented the model formulation and demonstration. Volume III is a user's manual and program documentation for the facilities maintenance cost model.
