Computersimulation für Brandschutz und Fußgängerverkehr


Flow direction: Uni- and bidirectional

Boundary condition: Open

Places of research: Public footpaths

  • Shopping Streets: Foottraffic in inner city shopping streets were measured. This traffic moved equally in both directions. There were bigger proportions of older people (mainly women) and children in the pedestrian groups.
  • Mixed Work Traffic: Mainly on workdays in the morning (6 to 8 o´clock) passenger flows were recorded, that consisted of workers of different companies. They moved on footpaths of inner city mainroads, mainly in one direction.
  • Event Traffic: Most of the data was obtained with pedestrians moving to and from a sports stadium.
  • Footpaths close to Factory Entrances: The group of pedestrians consisted of workers moving to and coming from big factories. Thus they were were trained with equal aim/source (unidirectional).

Data collection: Photographs and shots were taken from an elevated position with different types of equipment (photo and film cameras)
