An Overview Of Research On "people-fire Ineteractions"

Horiuchi, S., 1989. An Overview Of Research On "people-fire Ineteractions". Fire Safety Science 2: 501-510. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.2-501


In this paper, the author describes the recent trend of researches on how people move against a fire, especially those on human behavior for evacuation, classifying them by theme, method, and countermeasures. Many recent researches have applied a simulation model in parallel with increasingly sophisticated contents; however, the author stresses the importance of not posing the eventual goal of each research by misapplication. Further, with the recent increase in studies by researchers such as psychologists, a trend which is much appreciated, the author expects researches in this field will be promoted further through closer communications.
