Relocation during evacuation
Today, computer models are often used to simulate human evacuation. One problem is that these models are often based on old data, ie data from the 60s and 70s. In addition, this data is seldom particularly detailed, which makes it difficult to further develop today’s computer-based evacuation models. There is therefore a need to collect detailed data, but this requires appropriate measurement methods. The purpose of the Brandforsk project “Relocation during evacuation” was to investigate and evaluate possible measurement methods for collecting detailed data on relocation during evacuation. In addition, the goal was to propose some measurement methods that can be further developed in future research.
