Arrival Traffic Separations Modelling By Using Continuous Probability Distributions
Institute of Aeronautics and Applied Mechanics, Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology, Nowowiejska 24, 00-665 Warsaw, Poland
This article presents a method that allows to analyze selected aspects of past arrival traffic by modelling distributions of time separations of arriving aircraft in a chosen navigationpoint of Terminal Manoeuvring Area with the use of continuous probability distributions. Modelling arriving aircraft time separations distribution with continuous probability density functions allows to apply various mathematical tools to analyze separations distributions. Moreover, by comparing distributions parameters, quantitative analysis of separations for days with various arrival traffic intensity can be performed. Assumptions, mathematical model, application in the exemplary experimental scenario with an airport and days with low and high traffic intensity, and results are presented in this article. Real air traffic data was used for the experimental scenario. Outcomes show that the method can be used for air traffic post-analysis, e.g assessment of maintaining separation.
