Thesis Title: Flexibility of airport passenger buildings: a pedestrian and technology-oriented approach
Thesis Summary: This research project aims to explore the flexibility of airport passenger buildings. The provision of high Level of Service (LOS) is guaranteed while estimating adequately space configuration and minimizing the corresponding full costs involved. Space analysis, pedestrian planning, passenger behavior, airport performance evaluation, simulation modeling and flexibility analysis are the key scientific areas. Future uncertainty and the effect of new technologies are also taken into account. The developed methodology is applied at Lisbon Portela airport.
