Just read the discussion.
Regarding the incorporation of fire hazards into the People Movement (PM) models, as far as I know (based on my experience in using some of the PM models); some of these models allow the user to do it manually or to import from a fire simulation model. For instance:
- STEPS (data from FDS);
- EXODUS (data from CFAST and smartfire);
- LEGION (data from FDS).
These 3 models I am familiar with. I have also used SIMULEX a long time ago, but I don’t think it does allow anymore fire hazard inputs, correct me if I am wrong. I just used pathfinder once, during the beta test; so I am not sure neither if allows the user to insert fire hazard. I should probably read the review provided in the following website :) : http://www.firemodelsurvey.com/EgressModels.html
I personally think that it is good when the PM model allows the user to insert data generated from FDS.
p.s.: for me, PM models = evacuation models = egress models = pedestrian models
I have written few papers using this terminology though.
