  1. 1. Simulating Effects of Agent Velocity Changes on Crowd Behavior During Fire Emergency Evacuations

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

    Author : Charlie Mårtensson; Jacob Brännström; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Fire emergencies are both deadly and difficult to accurately model in real life. Computer-simulated crowds provide a way to observe the possible outcome of a fire emergency evacuation without endangering real human subjects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Simulation of standing versus crawling during evacuation from a smoke-filled room

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

    Author : David Bergendorff; Jonas Lundin; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Crawling is often the recommended method when evacuating from a burning room. In this study, an agent based crowd simulation in combination with a fire dynamics simulator is used in order to compare how well crawling evacuation compares to a standing type of evacuation. READ MORE

  3. 3. The impact of noice pollution and vibrations on nearby buildings : How is the school Kulturama affected by noise and vibrations from the 'nya tunnelbana' project?

    University essay from KTH/Byggteknik och design

    Author : Hadil Jawad; Aren Nabatyan; [2021]
    Keywords : Noice pollution; vibrations; metro; nya tunnelbana project; noice absorbents; Buller; vibrationer; stomljud; luftburet ljud; nya tunnelbana projekt; absorbenter;

    Abstract : To meet the needs of the growing city of Stockholm, a large-scale project to expand the subway has been initiated. The tunneling involved in the project causes several disturbances, in terms of vibration and noise pollution, on the surroundings. This is problematic as vibration and noise pollution has been shown to have a negative health impact. READ MORE

  4. 4. A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF TRAVELLING FIRE IN LARGE SPACES WITH MULTI-ZONE FIRE MODEL AND FDS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Paolo Bertoli; [2021]
    Keywords : Multi-Zone fire model; FDS; Large enclosures; Travelling fire.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A knowledge of far field temperatures is valuable for Performance Based Design structural analysis and life safety analysis, where a parametric study is needed. A fire model using multiple zones called a multi zone (MZ) fire model has in previous studies shown good potential as an analytical tool for predicting far field temperatures in large compartments.

  5. 5. The Investigation and Modeling of the interaction between Paperboard Clippings in a Pipe Flow

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för energivetenskaper

    Author : Lea Christierson; [2021]
    Keywords : Fluid-structure interaction; paperboard material modeling; transient pipe flow; overset mesh; image analysis; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the manufacturing process of Tetra Pak packages, holes are cut out of the paperboard for straws and caps. The left-over paperboard clippings, called confetti, need to be evacu- ated from the machine. However, this evacuation process has proven to cause problems due to jams arising as the confetti get stuck in joints and along the pipe walls. READ MORE
