Default A simulation model for emergency evacuation time and low-cost improvements

Project:*A simulation model for emergency evacuation time and low-cost improvements.
Location:*Krakow, Centre of Addiction Therapy

Summary:
How much time will take evacuation depending on different time frames during the day and what low-cost improvements can be made to shorten evacuation time

Measurements :
• door width;
• corridor width;
• staircase and railing width;
• location of potential obstacles, their width and the narrowing of the corridors.
• Number and location of patients, medical staff and administration at a given moment in time

Simulating:
• Five scenarios (night time, early morning, late morning and midday, afternoon, evening)
• Pauls and Helbings models for simulating evacuation dynamics
• Before and after low-cost improvements (changes in evacuation protocol, removing obstacles etc.)

Additional Info:

We are considering organize evacuation event in reality engaging students in this hospital facility. Comparison of the results might enlarge science value of this project.

Future work:

Creating models for emergency evacuation of other buildings in this hospital complex.

Thanks Jörg,

Flexsim Person flow looks very interesting. I think it's worth checking out, but in this particular project we focused on evacuation protocol (how personnel should lead patients out and etc.).
