21. Building Occupant Safety Research 2008
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1091
Published: 6/12/2009
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Jason D Averill, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: Historically, building egress systems have evolved in response to specific large loss incidents. Currently, systems are designed around a concept of providing stair capacity for the largest occupant load floor in the building with little or no consid ...

22. Stairwell Evacuation from Buildings: What We Know We Don't Know
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1624
Published: 6/12/2009
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Jason D Averill, Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: Occupant descent down stairwells during building evacuations is typically described by measureable engineering variables such as stairwell geometry, speed, density, and pre-evacuation delay. In turn, predictive models of building evacuation use the ...
