buildingEXODUS V4.0 is used to investigate a hypothetical tunnel fire evacuation. The fire is conditions are generated by the SMARTFIRE V4.0 software.  In this scenario, the tunnel exits are placed 100 m apart and occupants are given instant response times.  In this case many occupants fail to exit the tunnel prior to life threatening conditions developing.

maritimeEXODUS V4.0 simulation of a night case evacuation scenario involving fire.  The scenario has a fire imported from SMARTFIRE. The fire commences in a cabin and smoke and heat begin to spread throughout the corridors on this deck and other connected decks. The vessel has 650 passengers in three vertical fire zones. Paxs react with the normal IMO night time response times.

buildingEXODUS V3.0 is used to re-create the Gothenburg Disco fire.  This simulation uses data generated by fire model and experimental data.  The fire data is automatically transferred to the evacuation simulation. The simulation makes use of the buildingEXODUS toxicity model to investigate incapacitation and death of victims.

buildingEXODUS V3.0 is used to investigate the Gothenburg Disco fire.  Unlike in the previous simulation, here buildingEXODUS is used to examine what would have happened had an additional exit been available on the upper floor. In this case, everyone manages to escape with some survivors experiencing minor injuries.
