Does the evacuation concept work?
In an emergency, good advice is dearly needed. Such situations put the safety concept to the test: does the evacuation concept work? Do people react as anticipated? Are the evacuation assistants trained properly? Does the evacuation take as long as it was estimated in advance?
To avoid having to verify the plausibility of all variations and their matching evacuation concepts in the case of an actual emergency, computer-aided pedestrian crowd simulations can be utilized as a valuable tool. They can help if the reality is difficult to grasp or anticipating future situations is not easily doable/feasible. In a simulation, the computer calculates the evolution of crowd dynamics by following rules and guidelines. By doing so, different situations are virtually tested in advance, analyzed comprehensively, and interdependencies are automatically considered.
Prepare yourself by running what-if scenarios before an emergency can take place:
- How long does it take for everyone to be safe?
- Where do neuralgic points emerge?
- Where do I ideally place the security personnel?
- How can I minimize friction during an evacuation?
- How can I make sure the evacuation routes are used equally?
To get an idea of how our analysis can help you - have a look at some of our projects:
- simple determination of evacuation times
- revealing bottlenecks and neuralgic points
- resources for convincing communication with all parties involved
Your added value
- minimize your remaining risk
- reliable validation of escape and emergency routes
- knowledge in advance about possible scenarios and their dynamic
