Abstract

The research aims to assess the performance of historical buildings, regarding the safe evacuation of people, through a computer simulation which uses human behaviour as a variable. The simulations verified the evacuation time and the maximum distance travelled in emergency situations, as well as indicated bottlenecks and building’s critical points.

Keywords
