Abstract : This paper describes the Army-funded exploratory work in progress at the Target Behavioral Response Laboratory. Crowd behavior data collected under controlled laboratory conditions form the basis for mathematical models of human behavior, which are then coded into computational models of crowd human behavior. Verification and validation can then proceed with comparisons between outputs from simulations and behavioral data. The results of these preliminary efforts will initiate further work in the methods of incorporating human behavioral data into models and procedures for their validation.
