Modeling and Simulation of Fire Evacuation in Public Buildings

Nguyen Manh Hung, Ho Tuong Vinh, Richaud Jean-Charles


The negative consequence of fire, especially fire in public buildings, brings too much of lost in both human and money. The fire evacuation specialists proposed
many evacuate techniques, methods and policies adapting to the given building, groups of people, or situations.
However, conducting experiments to test these proposed solutions, in the reality, is nearly impossible. Therefore, simulation of fire and fire evacuation to evaluate these proposals is a reasonable solution. This paper proposes an agent-based model for modeling and simulation of fire evacuation in public buildings. The model is implemented and tested using the GAMA agent-based simulation platform.
