Abstract:

A computer model has been developed that simulated emergency evacuation in transport category aircraft. Two computer programs are available that model wide and narrow body aircraft. The computer model is statistical in that a gamma function is assumed to obtain a probability distribution for time path segments of a passenger during evacuation. The program has been successfully run on a IBM 370155 computer. Running time is dependent on the number of passengers and number of simulations run. Running time is approximately one minute for five evacuations of a 80 passenger narrow body aircraft. For 100 evacuations of a 389 passenger wide body aircraft running time is approximately 90 minutes. Author
