In many cases, following the fire regulations is adequate toensure safety, but in large places of public assembly, like shopping centers, sport stadiums orschools, obeying the requirements may not be enough to achieve a safe outcome. The movement of a large crowd can cause fatal circumstances even if the building follows the regulations.The circumstances leading to these potentially disastrous situations are possible to detect withcomputative egress simulation.There are several computational evacuation simulation models available. Nevertheless, the u
