  1. 1. The impact of social influence on pre-evacuation behavior - An eye tracking analysis on information gathering during pre-evacuation behavior, comparing normative and informational social influence

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Rebecca Rostedt; Sofie Andersson; [2019]
    Keywords : Social influence; informational social influence; normative social influence; pre-evacuation; evacuation; eye-tracking; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This study explores social influence within the pre-evacuation phase, which includes a literature review followed by experiments. The study is based on experiments by Latané and Darley (1968) but altered, here using eye tracking to examine if people who are alone use their gaze in the same way as people in a group, when collecting information in the pre-evacuation phase.

  2. 2. The Analysis of Results of Stochastic Evacuation Models

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Erik Smedberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Evacuation; Fire safety; Behavioural uncertainty; Evacuation modelling; Evacuation simulation; Pathfinder; Functional analysis; Egress.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : All humans are unique, we have different characteristics and we make different decision. This is a challenge when it comes to modelling human behaviour. The models we design are based on mathematics where there is no room for inconsistencies such that are present in human behaviour. READ MORE

    Author : Alexander Johansson; [2019]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Real-life aircraft evacuation drills can cost up to 2 million USD and may not at the same time be able to represent a real emergency scenario. with the use of evacuation models as a complement to the testing may reduce this cost. READ MORE

  4. 4. Simulation and evaluation of strategies for emergency evacuation of high-density crowds

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS); KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Isak Peterson; Emil Jonsson; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : It is of great importance to be able to quickly evacuate big crowds from venues such as concert arenas. This paper investigates and compares three different strategies for emergency evacuation of big crowds, based on frequently occurring phenomenons in evacuation, namely: To go for the closest possible emergency exit, to go for the main exit, meaning the way you came in, or to go for an emergency exit you have been given before the need for evacuation arises.
