Abstract

Based on cell transmission model, this paper formulates a dynamic simulation model for studying emergency evacuation in a public facility to improve evacuation efficiency, in terms of inefficiency of static simulation model. Considering evacuation population, evacuation rate, the size of buildings, diffusion probability of disaster, repulsive force between evacuees and other parameters, this paper first calculates the evacuation efficiency and evacuation time, and then proposes a evacuation plan. The simulation results show that the dynamic simulation model is advantageous over the static and the appropriate repulsive parameters can improve the evacuation efficiency.
