1. A Review of Risk Perception in Building Fire Evacuation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1840
Published: 10/1/2014
Authors: Max T. 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, or sociology), and the contexts surrounding the ways in which different concepts of RP are applied vary greatly. Definitions of RP can be broadly di ...

2. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. Fire Model Validation ‹ Eight Lessons Learned
Published: 3/6/2014
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Richard D Peacock, Kristopher J Overholt
Abstract: This paper provides a summary of a decade-long effort to verify and validate a variety of different fire models used in the commercial nuclear industry. The lessons learned apply to any industry in which fire models are used in a regulatory context ...

6. Stair Evacuation of People with Mobility Impairments
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Bryan Hoskins, Emily Wiess
Abstract: The time that it takes a population to reach safety when descending a stairwell during building evacuations is typically described by measureable engineering variables. These engineering variables include stairwell geometry, speed, density, and p ...

7. An analysis of evacuation travel paths on stair landings by means of conditional probabilities
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Paul A Reneke, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This paper provides the analysis of a data-set about people movement on stair landings collected during an evacuation drill performed in a six-storey office building in the United States. The evacuation drill was filmed and occupant‰s behaviours on ...

8. A probabilistic approach for the analysis of stair evacuation movement data
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: This paper presents an innovative method to study stair evacuation data based on a probabilistic analysis of occupant travel paths. This type of approach relies on a detailed video analysis of people movement and pattern reconstruction. Conditional ...

9. The Process of Verification and Validation of Building Fire Evacuation Models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1822
Published: 11/21/2013
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Erica D Kuligowski, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock, Daniel Nilsson
Abstract: To date, there is no International standard on the methods and tests to assess 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 i ...

10. Stair evacuation of older adults and people with mobility impairments
Published: 10/31/2013
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Emily Wiess, Bryan Hoskins
Abstract: Engineers analyze occupant movement data for the safety and protection of a population during emergency building evacuations. Quantifiable variables, such as: stairwell geometry, pre-evacuation delay, occupant speed, and population density form e ...
