Abstract : This volume provides a general description of the Airport Landside Simulation Model. A summary of simulated passenger and vehicular processing through the landside is presented. Program operating characteristics and assumptions are documented and a complete description of the input data required for simulation operation is furnished. Model outputs necessary for analysis of landside congestion include flow, queue length, queueing time and occupancy. Summaries of values of these parameters, obtained from a simulation run, are shown as examples. Time series of flow and queue length produced during the simulation run are also exhibited.
