1. A Performance-Based Analysis of a Hotel Building Using Two Egress Models
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, James A Milke
Abstract: This report compares results from similar egress models based on documented evacuation movement data. When EXIT89 and Simulex1 are used to 1) simulate the same design scenarios and 2) perform a bounding analysis of the hotel building, differences i ...

2. A Performance-Based Design of a Hotel Building Using Two Egress Models: A Comparison of the ResultsS
Published: 9/3/2004
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, James A Milke
Abstract: With the move toward performance-based design, engineers have been looking to evacuation computer models to assess a building s life safety. Many times, the engineer is tasked with the selection of one evacuation model for a specific project. Curre ...

3. A Review of Building Evacuation Models
Published: 7/1/2005
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: Evacuation calculations are increasingly becoming a part of performance-based analyses to assess the level of life safety provided in buildings. In some cases, engineers are using back-of-the-envelope (hand) calculation to assess life safety, and in ...
