    WayOut is one of 18 programs of the Fire Engineering software package FireWind.

  • The model is based on the experimental data of dependence of the velocity of pedestrian
    traffic on the density of traffic flow, as it is disclosed in book by V.M. Predtechenskii and

    A.I. Milinskii "Planning for Foot Traffic Flow in Buildings". Amerind Publishing
    Company, New Delhi, 1978. The model computes movement time applicably to an
    average street person in a mid-season dress. The algorithm is built for merging traffic and
    does not allow for dividing routes. For a situation with multiple exits and dividing routes
    a user is supposed to divide the evacuation area into “catchments” by “watersheds” on the
    basis of psychological or other considerations and to compute movement times for each
    catchment separately. The model assumes that the movement starts at blind ends and in
    the intermediate rooms movement starts when the first evacuees appear from the blind
    ends. The model allows for up to 400 “twigs” which represent rooms and parts of the
    rooms and corridors.
    The input of the program is geometrical configuration of the building (length and width
    of twigs, width of doors) and population numbers per twig. The output is the complete
    movement time from blind ends and times when each of the twigs is vacated.

    The computer implementation utilizes user friendly features of Windows: visualization of
    the evacuation tree, animation, clipboard saving and printing of computed results, and
    spread sheet presentation of the output.
