Defining a Crowd Safety Factor for the Designs of Assemblies

Rodrigo Machado Tavares - RMT Fire and Crowd Safety

Abstract

This paper promotes the discussion on how to minimize escape times considering the Relative Distance Between Exits (RDBE) as a “Crowd Factor” for the designs of assemblies. This study suggests that the exits’ locations have an important impact for highly dense places. In order to investigate this further, this paper explores scenarios representing an assembly environment. For this purpose, People Movement Modelling Analysis (PeMMA) is performed. The results obtained from PeMMA are presented and discussed in this paper. It is expected that this study can bring some additional light to the subjects related to crowd safety and management in general as well as to the use of People Movement (PM) models for this objective.
