Norén, Johan; Delin, Mattias; Fridolf, Karl LU ; Kuklane, Kalev LU ; Halder, Amitava LU ; Lundgren Kownacki, Karin LU ; Ronchi, Enrico LU and Arias, Silvia LU (2015) International symposium on Human Behaviour in Fire, 2015 In [Host publication title missing] p.161-172
Abstract
Field study of evacuation upwards long stairs, ascending evacuation, in two different buildings, 48 meters and 109 meters high. Measuring walking speed along the stair slope and vertical speed. Presenting values for different percentiles of the studied population. The importance of not using the same value for walking speed for different stairs since the design of the stairs has a strong impact, and that the vertical speed ought to be considered as well.
