33. Required Safe Egress Time: Data and Modeling
Published: 1/1/2008
Authors: Jason D Averill, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This paper identifies sources of uncertainty in RSET (required safe egress time) calculations, with focus on data and modeling. A model for efficiently calculating the range of egress solutions for a particular design is presented. Three recommendat ...
