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 ...

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 ...
