A Scoping Review for the Parameters of Crowd Movement

University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

Abstract: Existing models which describe crowd movement are running out of time and are failing to take the change of people’s characteristics into account. The purpose of this study is to determine the “state-of- the-art” regarding the research within the field of crowd movement and identify parameters that influence crowd movement. To do this, a scoping review was conducted and the articles that were found were analyzed further according to a systematic framework. The outcome of the scoping review was an in-depth analysis of thirty-five articles. This analysis resulted in fifty identified parameters and the analysis of relationships between those showed that twenty-two of them may be considered as fundamental. Suggestions of further research are presented with respect to the articles included and the analysis made. This future research may be focused on the twenty-two fundamental parameters and in particular six out of those twenty-two.
