Performance Measurements Of Evacuation Systems

Lovas, G.G., 1994. Performance Measurements Of Evacuation Systems. Fire Safety Science 4: 589-600. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.4-589


The paper discusses how the use of performance based safety codes is closely related to the availability of reliable tools to evaluate system performance. Several performance measures are defined for an evacuation system, and the paper presents an example of a simulation program designed to evaluate these measures.
