Escape, Evacuation and Rescue Study (EERS)
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the EER systems in various accidental situations.
The escape routes, stairwells, shelter areas, evacuation means and rescue operations are modelled as a flow network and each part of the network is assigned performance values (e.g. walking speed). This network can also be superimposed on the 3D risk model in “ASAP” such that the vulnerability of the EER systems is calculated as part of the risk analysis.
Example of flow network superimposed on the 3D risk model in ASAP. One escape route from an area to mustering at a life boat is shown. The escape time is calculated by the program.
