THE HIGH-RISE CONSTRUCTION SITE VALIDATION DATA SET FOR EVACUATION MODELS: A GUIDE TO THE DATA AND VALIDATION PROCEDURES [August 2019]
As part of the IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) funded research project, in collaboration with Multiplex, a series of four unannounced full-scale evacuation trials and five laboratory style walking speed trials were conducted on two different high-rise construction sites located in London UK. From these trials a full-scale validation data-set has been produced for high-rise construction sites.
All the information related to the High-Rise Construction Site Validation Data-set (HRCSVDS) can be downloaded from this website.
All members of the evacuation modelling community are invited to make use of HRCSVDS to evaluate evacuation modelling tools. By making use of this material you agree to abide by the following usage terms and conditions:

academic journals, conference proceedings and reports), which is
based in-part or wholly on HRCSVDS the following citations to the reference material must be made:
