Take typical arrival segment "GYA-AGVOS (Segment5)" as an example and making a comparison of air traffic flux and stock in cells between before and after the "valve" control, it is easy to find that the inflow and outflow in this segment become smooth and steady when there is the "valve" control and the stock of aircraft in each cell always meets the safety requirement as shown in Figures 7(a) and 7(b).
Taking typical arrival segment, Segment5, as an example, we derived the basic tendency of traffic flux and density relationship for arrival routes in terminal area as shown in Figure 9(a1).
