Basic Concepts γ δ ij vivi vjvj δdδd t ij δ ji vjvj vivi A-A δ ij or δ ji (mi) D-D t ij (sec) D-A δ d (mi) A-D Clear runway Entry Gate Time

5
Example 1 (1/3) Entry gate 7 miles; D-D 120 sec; D-A 2 miles; A-A: J-K 3 miles, J-J K-K 4 miles, K-J 5miles Arrival times: J 280 sec, K 245 sec; Runway occupancy and lift off roll 40 sec Runway capacity for pattern K K J K J? Note: j is slower, but also smaller aircraft than k (5 miles for wake vortex)

6
Example 1 (2/3) 7 mi K J K K J K 35 sec/mi; J 40 sec/mi K-K Same speed K-J Opening J-K Closing Note: ignore slopes of lines, first two K’s should be steeper

7
Example 1 (2/3) 7 mi K J K K J 5 K 35 sec/mi; J 40 sec/mi K-K Same speed K-J Opening J-K Closing

8
Example 1 (2/3) 7 mi K J K K J K 35 sec/mi; J 40 sec/mi K-K Same speed K-J Opening J-K Closing (7-5)* * (7*40) (7-3)* (7-5)* (7*40) (7*35) Note: pattern could repeat starting at 770s … why?

9
Example 1 (3/3) 7 mi K J K K J mi 175 K 35 sec/mi; J 40 sec/mi Note: need 120 s between successive departures… can not have two in a row with this repeating pattern of arrivals

10
Example 1 (3/3) 7 mi K J K K J mi Capacities Avg time of arrivals 770/5 = 154 sec C A = 3600/154 = 23.4 A/hr Three departures for 5 arrivals (0.60) C M = (3600/154)(1+.60) = 37.4 Ops/hr Note: if next K arrives at gate at 770 … then have 5 arrivals in 770s (different than book which would recommend 910). This assumes exact repeat pattern kkjkj. Book allows for varying pattern but same proportions.

11
Error Free Operations Arrival & departure matrices Same rules Inter-arrival time v i ≤ v j T ij = δ ij /v j v i >v j T ij = (δ ij /v i ) +γ [(1/v j ) –(1/v i )] control in airspace (separation inside gate) T ij = (δ ij /v j ) +γ [(1/v j ) –(1/v i )] control out of airspace (separation outside of gate) D-A min time δ d /v j Closing case Opening case

12
Example 2 (1/3) Entry gate 7 miles; D-D 120 sec; D-A 2 miles; A-A: J-K 3 miles, J-J K-K 4 miles, K-J 5miles; Arrival times: J 280 sec, K 245 sec; Runway occupancy and lift off roll 40 sec; Control in airspace. Speeds: K 103 mph; J 90 mph Runway capacity for error free operations for K 60% and J 40%? (note: proportion same as previous problem, but order not specified here so may have different pattern, e.g., kkjkj or kkkjj or kjkjk.)

13
Example 2 (2/3) SpeedsK 103 mph; J 90 mph T ij K-Kδ ij /v j = (4/103) 3600 = 140 sec J-J δ ij /v j = (4/90) 3600 = 160 sec J-Kδ ij /v j = (3/103) 3600 = 105 sec K-J(δ ij /v i ) +γ [(1/v j ) –(1/v i )] =(5/103 +7(1/90 -1/103))3600 = 210 sec P ij JK J K.36 Trail Lead E(T ij ) = ΣP ij T ij = 16(160)+.24(210)+.24(105)+.36(140) = sec C A = 3600/151.6 = 23.7 Arr/hr (note slight difference from example 1) JK J K Trail Lead T ij 0.4*0.6 = expected proportion of Ks following Js Faster, bigger plane

14
Example 2 (3/3) E(δ d /v j ) = 0.6 [2(3600)/103] [2(3600)/90] = 74 sec = average time available until plane touches down from 2 miles out E(R i ) = 40 sec = time to clear RW E(t d ) = 120 sec = time between departures For departures between arrivals, how much time does it take? E(T ij ) = E(δ d /v j ) +E(R i ) + (n-1) E(t d ) For 1 departure E(T ij ) = (1-1) 120 = 114 For 2 departures E(Tij) = (2-1) 120 = 234 P ij JK J K.36 Trail Lead T ij JK J K Trail Lead Total P ij 0.76 C M = (3600/151.6)(1.76) = 41.8 Ops/hr Note: highlighted area provides long enough times to release one departure. Never time to release two.

15
Example 2 (3/3) What if want at least 2 departures 20% of the time? Increase some T ij to 234 sec For 2 departures required E(Tij) = (2-1) 120 = 234 sec P ij JK J K.36 Trail Lead T ij JK J K Trail Lead C M = (3600/157.4)(1 + 1 ( ) + 2 (.24)) = 45.7 Ops/hr E(T ij ) = ΣP ij T ij =.16(160)+.24(234)+.24(105)+.36(140) = sec

16
Position Error Operations Aircraft can be ahead or behind schedule Need for buffer to avoid rule violation Aircraft position is normally distributed Buffer (B ij ) v j > v i zσ v j

17
Aircraft Position Error δ ij σ P

18
Example 3 (1/2) For same operations, assume a P v 10% and σ= 10 sec and estimate new capacity. K-Kσ z = 10 (1.28) = 12.8 sec J-J σ z = 10 (1.28) = 12.8 sec J-Kσ z = 10 (1.28) = 12.8 sec K-Jσ z -δ ij [(1/v j ) –(1/v i )] =( (3600/ /103) = … use 0 sec B ij T’ ij JK J K Trail Lead C A = 3600/161.3 = 22.3 Arr/hr E(T ij ) = ΣP ij T ij =.16(172.8)+.24(210)+.24(117.8)+.36(152.8) = sec T ij JK J K Trail Lead K 103 mph; J 90 mph

19
Example 3 (2/2) E(δ d /v j ) = 0.6 [2(3600)/103] [2(3600)/90] = 74 sec E(R i ) = 40 sec E(t d ) = 120 sec For departures between arrivals E(T ij ) = E(δ d /v j ) +E(R i ) + (n-1) E(t d ) + E(B ij ) For 1 departure E(T ij ) = (1-1) = For 2 departures E(Tij) = (2-1) = P ij JK J K.36 Trail Lead T ij JK J K Trail Lead Total P ij 0.76 C M = (3600/161.3)(1.76) = 39.3 Ops/hr E(B ij ) = 12.8(0.76)=9.7 sec

20
Runway Configuration Approach works for single runway Adequate for small airports Charts and software is used for more than one runways

21
Runway Configurations

22
Runway Configuration Selection Annual demand Acceptable delays Mix Index C+3D percentages

23
Delay & Runways Relationship between average aircraft delay in minutes and ratio of annual demand to annual service volume

24
Example 4 For a demand of 310,000 operations, maximum delay of 5 minutes, and MI 90 VFR, 100 IFR determine possible runway configurations Possible Options C ASV D ASV L ASV Demand/Service / =.98 Delays min All OK

25
Factors for Capacity (see p. 303) Aircraft mix Class A (single engine, <12,500 lbs) Class B (multi-engine, <12,500 lbs) Class C (multi-engine, 12, ,000 lbs) Class D (multi-engine, > 300,000 lbs) Operations Arrivals Departures Mixed Weather IFR VFR Runway exits

26
Nomographs, see AC 150/5060-5see AC 150/5060-5

27
Example 5 (1/3) Two parallel runways; Aircraft classes: A 26%; B 20%; C 50%; D 4%; Touch and go 8%; 2 exits at 4,700 ft and 6,500 ft from arrival threshold; 60% arrivals in peak hour. Capacity?

28
Example 5 (2/3) C= 92* 1* 1 = 92 ops/hr

29
Example 5 (3/3) C= 113* 1.04* 0.90 = 106 ops/hr

30
Annual Service Volume Runway use schemes Weighted hourly capacity (C w ) Annual service volume ASV = C w D H where D daily ratio; H hourly ratio Mix Index HD

31
Weighted Capacity C w = Σ C i W i P i / Σ W i P i … where P i percent of time for C i ; W i weight Percent of Dominant Capacity VFR All IFR Mix Index > Dominant Capacity: Greatest percent time use weights

32
Example 6 (1/3) VFRIFR 70% ops80% - 88 ops 20% - 88 ops 0% - 0 ops 10% - 40 ops 20% - 55 ops VFR 85%, MI 60; IFR 15% MI 95 A B C capacity

33
Example 6 (2/3) WeatherRunwayPercentCapacity VFRA60110 B1788 C840 IFRA1288 B00 C355 % of Dominant Capacity Weight C w = Σ C i W i P i / Σ W i P i = 770/5.70= 74.0 ops/hr WPCWP % x 70% = 59.5% 88/110

34
Example 6 (3/3) Annual demand: 294,000 ops; average daily traffic 877 ops; peak hour 62, MI 90 VFR/ 100 IFR What will be the Annual Service Volume that could be accommodated for the runway system shown? ASV = C w D H = 74 (294000/877) (877/62) = 350,900 ops/year
