Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


This article presents the findings of experimental work which underpins the development of a new approach to modeling evacuation. We intend that this model can be used in the future to more precisely and accurately model the movement of individuals, characterize complex crowd dynamics, and contribute to the design of safe buildings and infrastructures.
