On-line decision support for take-off runaway scheduling at London Heathrow Airport
Atkin, Jason Adam David (2008) On-line decision support for take-off runaway scheduling at London Heathrow Airport. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The research problem considered in this thesis was presented by NATS, who are responsible for the take-off runway scheduling at London Heathrow airport. The sequence in which aircraft take off is very important and can have a huge effect upon the throughput of the runway and the consequent delay for aircraft awaiting take-off. Sequence-dependent separations apply between aircraft at take-off, some aircraft have time-slots within which they must take-off and all re-sequencing performed by the runway controller has to take place within restrictive areas of the airport surface called holding areas.
