by Shen, Tzu-Sheng

Abstract (Summary)
This study proposed a concept and a method for building egress analysis. The works of this research include: develop procedures to analyze the egress system of a plan, propose methods and a program to identify target spaces in evacuation, present a dynamic blocking viewpoint of an egress system, dedicate a way to identify the threatening room of fire origin, and create an occupant evacuation model (ESM), whose functions are: to simulate the occupant evacuation in a building in the static and the dynamic blocking situations, to record the people changes at every compartment during evacuation, and to review the clearing times of different compartments. ii
