Empirical studies on pedestrian dynamics:evacuation and queue

Kumar, Rathikrinda Vinod (2014) Empirical studies on pedestrian dynamics:evacuation and queue. MTech thesis.



Studies on egress time spatial, temporal progression of pedestrian inside a hall are important for deign of exit of halls. Pedestrians act is different in some situations. Study experiments on evacuation from a hall are conducted to realize the impact of exits and the geometry of the flow space on pedestrian flow. This in an attempt to study the impact of geometric variations in Hall on the flow of pedestrians; how to behave pedestrians in the flow or motion are studied. The impact of geometry on flow is studied in terms of lateral and longitudinal variations in densities and longitudinal variations in speed along the Hall. These results may help in enclosed space geometry and exits. Evacuation experiments designed to investigate the progression of pedestrians in a hall have been conducted. And also study one of the interesting pedestrian flow spaces is queue before point based server. Only, it should be such that our generalized model can explain every situation. Hither, the primary idea of the model remains the same; but requires some switches are off and applying some changes. In this study, we are assuming that we are unable to change the arrival distribution, arrival source, service distribution, number of servers and service discipline. Here we will consider the pedestrian behavior in queue at microscopic level and some measuring parameters in macroscopic level. The amounts of these macroscopic parameters are necessary for queue space design.
