Abstract ACRP Report 79: Evaluating Airfield Capacity provides a guidebook and accompanying CD-ROM to assist airport planners with airfield and airspace capacity evaluation at a wide range of airports. The guidebook describes available methods for evaluating existing and future airfield capacity; provides guidance on selecting an appropriate capacity analysis method; provides best practices in assessing airfield capacity and applying the modeling techniques; and outlines specifications for new models, tools, and enhancements. The guidebook includes relevant background information on airfield components and operations, descriptions of existing modeling tools, explanations of new modeling tools created as part of this research, and a decision-support tool to help select a capacity evaluation technique. The accompanying CD-ROM provides prototype capacity spreadsheet models that are designed to be a preliminary planning tool, similar to the Airfield Capacity Model (ACM) but with more flexibility to change input assumptions to represent site-specific conditions from the most simple to moderate airfield configurations.
