FSEG and other project partners will be presenting the main findings from project SAFEGUARD at a 1 day seminar in central London. The seminar will address the following key questions:
- Do we really know that cruise ships and
passenger ferries can safely evacuate passengers in an emergency?
- How do “real” passengers actually react in an evacuation?
- Can we be certain that the current passenger evacuation simulation software is realistic?
- How can we improve current IMO guidelines concerning the assessment of ship evacuation capabilities?
The seminar will present the work of SAFEGUARD
and discuss suggested modifications to the IMO MSC Circ 1238 arising
from the project.
The content of the seminar is as follows:
- Background on ship evacuation issues.
- Introduction to the SAFEGUARD project, methodology, description of the three shipping companies and the ships investigated.
- Enhanced Benchmark Scenarios and model performance and recommendations to IMO MSC.
- Response time data set: data collection, the data sets, implications to IMO MSC.
- Validation data sets: data collection, the data sets, the model performances, and the recommendations to IMO MSC.
- Heel Benchmark: Rationale, the benchmark, the model performances and the recommendations to IMO MSC.
- Fire Benchmark: Rationale, the benchmark, the model performances and the recommendations to IMO MSC.
