Stochastic Analysis Of Egress Simulations

May 19, 2017
The use of egress simulation models in performance-based analysis relies on the confidence in the input and output data. These data strongly depend on a large number of parameters. The study presented here focuses on the statistical aspects of these data, especially the population behavioral parameters which are the most likely to be scattered. The study proposes a method to analyze the statistical aspects of an egress simulation model. Read More...
