The need for a verification and validation protocol for evacuation models

Ronchi, Enrico LU orcid (2014) Fire and Evacuation Modeling Technical Conference (FEMTC) 2014
Abstract
To date, there is no standard Verification and Validation (V&V) protocol for the evaluation of evacuation model predictions. This paper is intended to open a discussion on the main issues associated with the definition of a standard procedure for the V&V of building fire evacuation models. Examples of such issues are discussed, namely 1) the definition of tests able to investigate the capability of evacuation models of representing emergent behaviours, 2) a discussion on the methods employed to study the uncertainty caused by the use of distributions or stochastic variables in evacuation modelling, 3) the definition of the acceptance criteria of a standard V&V protocol.
