Modeling and Strategic Flow Management Using Decomposition Method

Dengfeng Sun, Alexandre Bayen

INFORMS Annual Meeting 2007, Seattle, Nov 4-7, 2007

Abstract: A new Eulerian-Lagrangian Cell Transmission Model for air traffic flow is developed on a graph-theoretic network flow model constructed from historical air traffic data. The predictive capabilities of the model are successfully validated against recorded air traffic data. A large-scale optimization problem of controlling sector aircraft counts over the National Airspace System is posed as a Mixed Integer Linear Program. The problem is solved using dual decomposition method.
