Cascade - Queue Model of Airport Users 780518

A deterministic, cascade or network queueing algorithm is presented that relates, using a recursive formula, the passenger arrival patterns at components of any two successive stages of airport terminal-building processors as a function of the service times, service rates, and waiting times of components in the first stage and the passenger flow distribution pattern. The effects of ancillary activities between two stages are treated with a stimulus-response model; the stimulus is time before departure and the response is ancillary activity usage. An attempt to implement the model using a discrete-time flow model is described.
