Reinforcement learning has shown that, when combined with deep learning techniques, is able to provide solutions to complex and dynamic problems. Air traffic control is considered to be an problem of such nature, which bears the question to mind; Can reinforcement learning be used to solve the problem of air traffic control. This work explores...

On-board electric motors can be used to drastically reduce the fuel usage during the taxiing phase of aircraft, leading to cost reductions for airlines and lower amounts of harmful emissions. This study analyses the current state of this innovation and its potential impact on aviation. On a global level, full adoption of electric aircraft...

The almost ceaselessly growing Air Transportation System has led to concerns across airports on how to deal with this growth. Also Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS) experienced large increases in number of passengers and movements over the last decades: the current limit of 500,000 annual movements of the airport is (nearly) reached. Before...

In the current economy, many airports are operating close to their maximum capacity with high utilisation rates. This raises the need for airports to implement demand management measures. This need is further exacerbated when the capacity is further limited due to weather-based capacity shortfalls. Therefore, the development of an Evaluation...

The steady growth of air traffic volumes and the subsequent increase of congestion at major airports require airports to increase their operational efficiency. Inefficient or the absence of gate reassignment models increase the possibility and occurrence of gate blockage and at the same time reduce the comfort of passengers as they often receive...

Janssen, Jaap (author)
Due to the rapid growth of air traffic and the corresponding increase in demanded landing capacity of airports, much research has been done on arrival scheduling and approach trajectory optimization aiming to not only maximize the effective runway throughput of an airports runway system but also significantly reduce fuel consumption. This thesis...

In order to efficiently accommodate the future, continuously growing air traffic demands at Brussels National Airport (EBBR), as well as to avoid an impending saturation of the terminal airspace, the concept of point merge has been identified as a potential solution. The characteristics of point merge that made it at first glance an interesting...

Humanitarian organisations have a goal to help people in need by providing help in all kinds of ways.<br/>Supplies and humanitarian workers have to be transported to every place where support is required. Even remote locations, where transport over conventional roads might be impossible, have to be accessible. Aviation is the solution for these...

Demand for air traffic is growing worldwide. In order to accommodate this growth, existing infrastructure such as gates should be used more efficiently. One technique to increase gate utilization is by introducing gate pit-stops. Introducing gate pit-stops leads to additional towing movements which can potentially interfere with other traffic on...

Operational towing is a taxiing strategy to reduce the fuel consumption during the taxiing phase of a flight, which decreases the cost and environmental impact of taxiing. Currently, no operational electric towing systems are available that are fully electric, independent from the APU and are capable of towing both narrow- and wide-bodied...

The purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of individually established buffer times, based on historical delay data, on the robustness of an operational stand and gate allocation schedule. Using flight schedules and the structural lay-out of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, a stand and gate allocation model is created using BEONTRA...

The master thesis is about testing the effectiveness of the Airport demand management strategies. Based on the problem of increasing pressure on airport capacity, due to the increase of the demand on flying. The goal is to find a system which supports planning of air traffic control by generating knowledge about the throughput of arrivals. A...

With this research the landside departure processes of four airports have been simulated using a discrete event simulation. By increasing today’s passenger numbers the bottlenecks of each of these airports are determined. An optimization to the used equipment has been performed in order to make the process more efficient. Furthermore, the...

The main objective of a Master Plan is to develop an integral long-term development plan to guide the future of an airport. One important element is the capacity analysis as a first step in strategic airport planning. The research commissioned by NACO is boiled down to the main research objective: to contribute to the development of Strategic...

In the near future the Royal Netherlands Air Force will replace their fleet of F-16’s with the F-35. In the past the NLR has aided the Air Force with life cycle and deterioration analysis work on the F100-PW-220 engine, which powers the F-16. Understanding the physical system of the engine allows for on-condition maintenance. The same is...

Schiphol Airport has to cope with a passenger demand that will double over the next 20 years. In reaction to this growth Schiphol is designing new and redesigning existing piers to increase its capacity. Besides expanding and rebuilding the apron area, more efficient ways of handling passenger<br/>air traffic movements are currently under...

Airports are highly complex systems that can generate economic growth<br/>on their own. Accordingly, airports should take proactive actions to<br/>create a status quo between the stakeholders(the airport itself,<br/>airlines, passengers) in the tactical planning of the aircraft stand<br/>allocation. Namely, the harmonization between the...
