  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. Assessment of People's Perception of Fire Growth: A Virtual Reality Study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Francisco Rosero; [2017]
    Keywords : Virtual Reality; Fire Growth; Estimation; evacuation; emergency; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : One important aspect that is considered when designing safer buildings is human behavior. A comprehensive assessment of how people react during a fire, provides engineers valuable information, which will allow them to develop effective solutions to help people reach a safe place under tenable conditions.

    Abstract : The thesis purpose is to validate a set of functionalities of MassMotion. MassMotion is an evacuation model that can simulate the pedestrian movement in a 2D environment and visualize it in a 3D environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Verification and Validation of Viswalk for Building Evacuation Modelling

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Johan Henningsson; Johan Blomstrand Martén; [2015]
    Keywords : Viswalk; evacuation model; egress model; verification; validation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis is evaluating the pedestrian modelling software Viswalk for the use as a building evacuation model, by verifying and validating the model. In the verification, a procedure from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is used as a basis to assess Viswalk’s ability to represent pre-evacuation time, movement and navigation, exit usage, route availability and flow constraints.
