11. A Review of Risk Perception in Building Fire Evacuation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1840
Published: 9/25/2014
Authors: Max Kinateder, Erica D Kuligowski, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: Risk perception (RP) is studied in many research disciplines (e.g., safety engineering, psychology, and sociology), and the context in which RP is studied varies greatly. Definitions of RP can be broadly divided into expectancy- value and risk-a ...

12. Movement on Stairs During Building Evacuations
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1839
Published: 9/25/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Emily A. Wiess, Jason D Averill, Robert Charles Hagwood, Enrico Ronchi, Bryan Hoskins, Michael Spearpoint
Abstract: The time that it takes an occupant population to reach safety when descending a stairwell during building evacuations is typically described by measureable engineering variables such as stairwell geometry, speed, density, and pre-evacuation delay ...

13. Assessing the Verification and Validation of Building Fire Evacuation Models
Published: 9/19/2014
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Erica D Kuligowski, Daniel Nilsson, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: To date there is no International standard on the verification and validation (V&V) of building fire evacuation models, i.e., model testers adopt inconsistent procedures or tests designed for other model uses. For instance, the tests presented with ...

Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1827
Published: 2/14/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Hidemi Omori
Abstract: When a building emergency occurs, it is not always sufficient to simply initiate alarm bells. Individuals may not know what the alarm bell means and as a result may respond inappropriately to its sound. Many buildings have installed mass notificat ...
