Abstract:

This document reviews the history and current status of computer models of the evacuation of an airliner cabin. Basic concepts upon which evacuation models are based are discussed, followed by a review of the Civil Aeromedical Institutes efforts during the 1970s. A comparison is made of the three models available today GA Model, AIREVAC, and EXODUS. The report then reviews parameters common to all models, and discusses literature available as a basis for these parameters. Finally, the report briefly discusses validation exercises for evacuation models. Computer model, Evacuation, Cabin safety.
