1 Tunnel (evacuation planning and simulation )

Simulation of an evacuation in an aging society using 3D VR
Due to the aging population, there are many public facilities that were built during years of rapid economic growth. Evacuation analysis using 3D VR is an analysis involving the study of characteristics inherent to the elderly and suggesting low-cost safety measures using the existing infrastructure. This case supposes there's a fire in a tunnel and introduces the linkage of 3D VR to an evacuation analysis of an evacuation situation with elderly and healthy people.

2 Store fire (Fire and evacuation simulation) (Presentation about Karaoke store)

Fire at Takarazuka karaoke box
An actual case of an fire evacuation, simulated by SMARTFIRE and buildingEXODUS. According to a report by Takarazuka city fire department, a fire broke at Karaoke box "Beat" in Takarazuka, Hyogo Prefecture at around 18:30 on Saturday, January 20th. The disastrous fire, which broke out on the cooker of the first floor kitchen, claimed the loss of total 218m2 area of the 2 story steel-framed-structure building for offices and warehouses before being extinguished an hour later. Among 18 store employee and customers inside the building at the time of the fire, 7 people who needed help were rescued 26-38 minutes after the report, 3 found in the back room of the 2nd floor were killed from CO poisoning and other 5, including 1 seriously injured, were injured.
Setting condition of the building
  • Around 18: 30, January 20, 2007 (about 1 hour between fire reported and extinguished)
  • Death: 3 (18 years old: 1, 17years old: 1, 16years old: 1)
  • Injured: 5 (17years old: 1, Junior high student: 4)

3 Airport (Evacuation simulation in large scale)

Evacuation simulation at Shanghai Hongqiao-Rainbow Bridge-Traffic Center Building
Shanghai Hongqiao is a large hub, that is connected to railway, road traffic, long-distance passenger bus and other transportation system and the construction was one of the most complicated in the world. For reproduction and ensuring safety, the overall planning and the simulation of distributed pedestrian flow was required. Hence, the representation of VR was made by using EXODUS evacuation simulation and UC-win/Road

4 Office, hotel and housing complex: Pedestrian Flow simulation

Pedestrian simulation at complex building over 3. different hours a day
Pedestrian flow was simulated by "exodus" over 3 patterns: 6:00-12:00, morning commuting hours; 12:00-18:00, business hours of shops and restaurants; and evening commuting hours. DXF file of the designed buildings were imported, nodes and exits were placed as modeling for the simulation and 3 pedestrian flow files set for each time zone were provided, and simulation was carried out separately. UC-win/Road has UC-win/Road EXODUS Plug-in, a plug-in option which can move the human model by reading the data of human behavior simulated by EXODUS. The plug-in option can import the data and represent the pedestrian behavior realistically in VR. Human behavior reproduced by UC-win/Road can be recorded in xml by Micro Simulation Player. This xml data is further used to visualize the crowd density in circle graph at SECOM Intelligent Systems Laboratory by using IFC data. In addition, it was reflected in the safety plan by the analysis and the use of visualizing by the polygon with a cross-sectional view of the line route.
Condition setting of the building
  • Hotel: 250 rooms (underground parking lot: minimum 100 lots)
  • Office: Area no less than 50,000m2 (underground parking lot: minimum 200 lots)
  • Housing: 200 households : 80 x 3 bed apartments, 80 x 2 bed apartments, 40 x 1 bed(1 car/1 household (total: 200))
  • Shopping space : 2000m2 (designed in the combination of 1,2 and 3)

6 Build Live Tokyo 2010 (evacuation planning, simulation )

Examining evacuation at media art center
Media art center, which is to be planned, has features such as exhibition hall and multi-purpose hall. As it is expected to attract customers after the completion, careful consideration of the trajectories are expected in the early stage of the basic design. The data, which was created by Allplan BIM Integrated Solution as basic design model, will be linked to evacuation simulation software EXODUS for pedestrian simulation. The simulation result will be visualized in VR environment by UC-win/Road. That feedback to the basic design allows the problem solving in early stage and the front-loading of the plan.

2. Function

Q2-1. Tell me how to execute buildingEXODUS simulation fastest?
A2-1. You should choose batch mode to execute the buildingEXODUS simulation fastest.
You can save time by eliminating graphic drawing of the calculation process.
Q2-2. How evacuees are placed at random in batch mode process?
A2-2. The best way to place to the zone at random normally and save as new EXO file. In batch mode process, you can load multiple EXO files at once, instead of loading single EXO files one by one and placing evacuees at random.
Q2-3. Is it possible to import graphs of buildingEXODUS to other program like word processor?
A2-3. Yes, it is.
Q2-4. Can I check evacuation simulation visually in time periodical history?
A2-4. Yes. You can check visually in 2D or 3D the simulation result: evacuation behavior of evacuees you have placed.
Q2-5. Can EXODUS import CAD data of buildings?
A2-5. Yes, it can. EXODUS can read all layers of DXF files. You must delete unnecessary drawing data on CAD software before exporting the data in DXF file.

3. Output
Q3-1. Can I output the scenario setting condition of the initial setting?
