Modeling and Simulation of Macroscopic Pedestrian Flow Models
Mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of human crowd motion have become a major subject of research with a wide field of applications. A variety of models for pedestrian behavior have been proposed on different levels of description in recent years. Macroscopic pedestrian flow model involving equations for density and mean velocity of the flow is derived in Bellomo and Dogbe (Math. Models Methods Appl. Sci. 18:1317-1345, 2008), Burger et al. (Discrete Contin. Dynam. Systems Ser. B: J. Bridging Math. Sci. 19:1311-1333, 2014), Hughes (Transp. Res. B Methodol. 36:507-535, 2000) and Mahato et al. (Appl. Math. Model. 53:447-461, 2018; Int. J. Adv. Eng. Sci. Appl. Math. 10:41-53, 2018).
