Emergency Simulation: model for evacuation in large public places
Keywords:Humanitarian Logistics, Complex Systems Modeling, Emergency Simulations
This study aims to create a model focused on reducing evacuation time in emergency situations. The situations of queues and human agglomerations are due to a large part of the population swelling occurred in the last decades, therefore, the analysis of the general trends of behavior in the pedestrian circulation contributes to the identification of the possible displacement flows in situations of crowd evacuations. In this case, the creation of a model that simulates real conditions of panic leakage can generate results with practical application in everyday situations, thus contributing to the correct design of entertainment facilities such as movie theaters and theater. Reducing exposure time is a key factor in minimizing major damage and loss in emergency situations.
