  7. Abstract:
  8. The airport terminal is difficult to plan and design due to the different components and the intricate complexity of its parts. At the airport terminal, we face a queue system which simulation is always a good way to analyze. In addition, computer simulation using modern softwares with the capability to model different types of systems, including the airport terminal, while being less realistic than analytical models, is less costly than operational Exercise.In this study, a supportive approach for better and specific management of Iranian airport terminal buildings with discrete-event simulation is proposed, considering the need for managing the airport terminals building in the country and the expansion of air transportation. This thesis presents a simulation model of Iranian airports using library research on numerous articles, theses and dissertations related to the subject, their examination and evaluation as well as field studies at Kish International Airport. The model can also be easily applied to all airports in the country with minor modifications.The model developed in this study has good potential for exploring different scenarios including changing resources, changing terminal management policies and predicting terminal status if any changes occur. One of the cases considered in this study is the improvement of the layout and distances of the various terminal sections. Another important use of the model is to examine the effect of gender segregation that has increased costs and reduced level of service
