EXODUS can be used for both evacuation simulation and pedestrian dynamics/circulation analysis. The software has been developed to meet the challenging demands of performance based safety codes. Based on a highly sophisticated set of sub models, it shatters the mould of traditional engineering analysis to produce realistic people-people, people-fire and people-structure interactions. As a result, the engineer can test more designs in less time to reach the optimal solution, free of the high cost and potential danger associated with human evacuation trials. Developed by the Fire Safety Engineering Group at the University of Greenwich, EXODUS comprises a suite of software packages, tailored to the building, maritime, rail and aircraft environments.

The pioneering capabilities of the EXODUS software and the research that has been undertaken to develop the software has been recognised by a number of major awards, including:

The Queen's Anniversary Prize 2002,
The British Computer Society Gold Medal for IT in 2001,
The CITIS (Communications & IT in Shipping) Award for Innovation in IT for Ship Operation and Safety in 2002,
The Royal Institution of Naval Architecture/Lloyds Register Award for Ship Safety in 2002,
The IST prize for 2004 awarded by Euro-CASE,
The 2008 SFPE Jack Bono Engineering Communication Award,
The 2010 Royal Aeronautical Society’s Bronze Award,
The 2013 Royal Institution of Naval Architects Medal of Distinction,
The 2014 “The Guardian” University Award for Research Impact,
The 2015 SFPE Foundation Awards First Annual Dr. Guylène Proulx, OC, Scholarship.

In addition, the UK MOD has endorsed the maritimeEXODUS software as the escape tool that most closely meets it’s requirements for the development of warship escape design guidance and assessment.

The EXODUS development group of FSEG is available for consultative services to the building, aviation, marine and rail industries.  Software licenses are also available for purchase. For more information contact the FSEG director.
