1. Perspectives of Occupants with Mobility Impairments on Fire Evacuation and Elevators
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1923
Published: 8/15/2016
Authors: Kathryn M Butler, Susanne M Furman, Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to provide guidance for designers, building managers, and fire emergency personnel on how to improve communication, procedures, and elevator usage during fire emergencies, based on a study of the evacuation exper ...

2. Movement on Stairs During Building Evacuations
Published: 6/8/2016
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Erica D Kuligowski, Robert Charles Hagwood
Abstract: The time that it takes an occupant population to reach safety when descending a stair during building evacuations is typically estimated by measureable engineering variables such as stair geometry, speed, stair density, and pre-observation delay. I ...

3. Computer Evacuation Models for Buildings
Published: 11/9/2015
Author: Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: N/A for SFPE Handbook Chapters. Included here is text from the chapter introduction: "With the rapid increase in computer capability and the increase in egress model development, there is a need for guidance on evacuation modeling, specifically th ...

4. Human Behavior in Fire
Published: 11/9/2015
Author: Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: N/A for an SFPE Handbook Chapter

5. Representation of Human Behavior in Fire
Published: 11/9/2015
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Steve Gwynne
Abstract: N/A -- this is a chapter for a Springer book on evacuation modeling.

Published: 9/28/2015
Author: Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: The human behavior in fire field is founded by and has deep roots within the field of fire protection engineering. Extensive research and efforts have been performed on the aspects of human behavior in fire that we can directly observe, including eva ...

Published: 9/28/2015
Authors: Steve Gwynne, Erica D Kuligowski, Michael Kinsey
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to introduce a conceptual model of human behaviour in fire. This model is constructed based upon a theoretical framework of individual decision-making and response to emergencies, and from this foundation, is populated ...

8. Model Building: An Examination of the Pre-evacuation Period of the 2001 WTC Disaster
Published: 6/8/2015
Author: Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: This paper presents two models developed to describe the pre-evacuation period of the 2001 WTC Disaster. The first model is a conceptual model developed from performing a qualitative study of occupant behavior in response to the September 11, 2001 ...

9. Services & Maintenance: Emergency Notifications
Published: 3/30/2015
Author: Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: N/A

10. 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 ...
