Abstract
The more obvious global warming in past years has resulted in climate changes. Located in circum-Pacific earthquake zone, lots of earthquakes often result in landslides. Moreover, the island climate, greenhouse effect, and climate abnormality cause frequent heavy rainfall and rainstorm for disasters of debris flow, landslide, and earth slide on hillsides. In face of natural disasters and the introspection after disaster relief movement, the arrangement of evacuation programs, in consideration of safety and promptness, becomes one of important research issues. In this study, AnyLogic is applied to simulate pedestrian dynamics for assisting in the dynamic simulation of debris flow evacuation of hillside communities, and the simulation results are used for discussing the appropriateness of the evacuation plan. The result reveals that, as the example of Yuanquan Village, Ershui Town, Changhua County in Taiwan, it takes about 15min for protected targets evacuating from dangerous areas to the shelter, which is about the same as the actual debris flow prevention drill in the community.
